    Re: Kimble two point reviews?

    Glad to hear you got a Kimble Markus... am very happy that worked out for you. If you're loving it now wait till you've been playing it a year or two... everything will just get better and bolder!...

    Re: Truss Rods vs Carbon Fiber?

    after 50 years of playing the mandolin my motto (one of many I guess) is this... if it doesn't have a functional truss rod, I ain't buyin' it.
  4. Re: Gibson F-5L from '78-'82 Serial numbers and information.

    Re: D'Addario Chris Thile Signature Pick

    Like Daniel above I found them to be quite stiff... which is strange because they're supposed to be a 1.4!

    Also both of mine arrived with a "curve" to them, rather than being truly "flat".
