    Is the traveling pick sampler still active?
  3. Re: got a live one here folks, and he is coming in hot

    +1 for avoiding any mandolin with a straphanger installed in the button. No need for that amateur crap. Your money is best spent elsewhere.

    Re: Modern F4 options?

    I may be wrong but I believe that most modern oval holed makers use an X-brace rather than tone bars or the single old style brace.
