    Re: A new Art Deco inspired mandolin

    Graham: That is one spectacular looking mandolin. Unique from the endpin to the headstock. I'm sure that constructing the ribs wasextra hours of effort and especially with the lines of inlay...

    Re: Sorensen Sprite!

    Congratulations on joining the Sorensen club. My Sprite keeps getting better and better, or I keep getting better and better at pulling the tone out of it.

    Re: MAS killer

    That is a rare mandolin, and like the bubonic plague (which is also rare these days), nobody is clamoring to get it!

    Re: Nmd

    Congratulations - the Collings will either be a lifetime mandolin, a step on the slippery slope of MAS, or both. Enjoy it in good health and play the snot out of it!

    Re: Apitius Yorkville Jazz Mandolin

    Aaron: I think this mandolin compliments your bowties better than the Red Diamond! In all seriousness; a spiffy looking and great sounding mandolin, played by a master.
  9. Re: Flatiron A-5 Artist, 1,500 should I get it?

    I'm usually a trusting soul, but with some unidentified potential issues and a relatively low price, I'd probably pass on this one. The no return policy would certainly be the deal-buster for me.
  10. Re: Feedbacks on my F Mandolin and complete gear :)

    Welcome as a participating member of the Cafe! Thanks for your detailed description of your rig. Hopefully you will post more about your mandolin journey.

    Re: One versus two-piece backs

    I have had both and either can float my boat! A bookmatched 2-piece back can be glorious in its symmetry, while a well-figured 1-piece can look like the sunrise or the ocean surface.

    Nice concept and (from the video) execution! A 5-string would be great also.

    Poll: Re: Poll - Torrefied vs Natural

    I don't care one way or another, as long as it sounds good to me! I've heard great with both terrified and regular lumber in guitars and mandolins.

    Re: Jazz Players

    I'll give big thumbs up to the Stiernberg Soundslice lessons, Aaron's Pegged Nation course, and Flinner's Swing sessions - they've all helped me get through this year.

    The left hand controls the notes, the right hand puts the soul in the music.
