    Hello! I am wondering if there are any case experts who might be able to help me identify this case that my 2007 Ellis F5 came in. I bought the mando used so I am not sure if it is the original one....

    Collings MF5 - Any years to avoid?

    I think my MAS may be getting a resolution soon, or at least a focus on a specific model and brand. I am looking to purchase a Collings MF5 soon, but have never owned a Collings and am not very...

    Re: Mandolin flagship song?

    I think "Copperhead Road" comes to mind. I've also had lots of people ask for "Atlantic City"

    Early Gibson A4 - Different Inlays?

    I have been eyeing this 1918 A4: https://www.talltoadmusic.com/product-page/1918-gibson-a4-professional-mandolin
    ...and noticed the different inlays. Would those have been original? Has anyone else...

    There is the new 4th gen F5, and I am going to call Northfield and see if I can get it with a wide nut. I overlooked them for a while, but they are lovely looking and sounding instruments.

    Thank you for the warning, but I really loved the tone I got when I played the McClanahan in a store. I've also listened to a number of people with different styles play his instruments and I like...
  12. Re: Lost in the Builders looking for a McClanahan Tone

    Thank you for turning me on to these! I like what I am seeing and hearing, and the general tone Ms. Pava is getting is definitely in the ballpark of where I want to be.
