    Re: New bluegrass fiddle tune jam along podcast

    Matt,

    Re: Is It Possible to Fake It?

    This thread makes my pea brain hurt.

    Re: scraping celluloid bindings

    I assume they are glued in and you have done any staining/dyeing. My thinking is to apply a light coat or two of finish, give that a day to dry, then scrape away. Seems like a bit of finish on there...

    Re: Raising the action on my MT

    Normally, counter clockwise when viewed from above will raise it.

    It is easier to turn them if you slacken the strings a bit.

    You just know. Sometimes you will think you know and later discover that you were wrong.

    Ya’ll are just asking for it. Haha. Of course, a stand may represent a deeper subconscious desire for a new mandolin. Nothing wrong with that but why wreck one to get another? Seems a waste.
