    Re: What’s after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    It's not, I've just been curious if there's another level of acoustic depth in higher level models. I absolutely know that I have much practice and playing to go (and technique to improve upon), so...

    Re: What’s after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    I’m super tempted by that Vessel, but I’m going to wait. I’ve told myself I need to wait a year. Try out a ton. Get a few lessons from some pros to ensure my right hand technique is on path. But now...

    Re: Why Mandolin?

    Randomly. I've played guitar since I was 8, was in a ska/punk band for 5 years, etc.

    I got on a "git gud" kick and got into some flatpicking stuff, found Nickel Creek, and really enjoyed the sound...

    Funny you mention Weber, I was wondering the same thing. Wasn't sure if their top tier is worth anything.

    Re: What’s after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    Thanks for the advice, JeffD. I definitely feel bad sometimes getting instruments that are beyond my abilities, but you are right, it's something where I know the "getting better" side of things is...

    Re: What’s after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    Thanks so much for all the advice. This part of it really hit me. It's true that if I can't really tell off the bat, there's no point in moving on. (though I'm sure that won't happen, lol)

    Re: What’s after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    Thanks a ton! Great info. It helps to know more about Gibsons not necessarily being all winners. Will ultimately need to make sure I have a window to try or the ability to do it in person.

    Any other brands/makers I should be aware of, or conversely, avoid?

    What’s after a Kentucky KM-1050?

    I’ve been playing for a bit now and I’ve been really enjoying my Kentucky KM-1050. I’m just curious what I’d go up to after that? I’d be looking for an American made (or does that really even matter...
