    He’s doing great. He is moving his home and shop a bit farther north in the Taos area. He will be back up and going again. That said, I had Dave Harvey in Nashville refret my mandolin last time. He...

    Re: Over $21K for a NEW Gibson F5 MM

    The Mater Models are every bit the exquisitely made and sounding instruments as the Gilchrists, Red Diamonds, Nuggets, Heiden, etc. I have no issue with the price if that’s the going rate for that...

    Re: How Long do your J74Strings last?

    I play a lot and 2-4 weeks depending on how much guitar playing I’m doing. After I get the new ones up to tension and play a bit I’m happy that I took the time to change them out.

    Re: How Long do your J74Strings last?

    I use J74s as well and go through a set every two weeks when I am playing a lot. The exps last longer but do not sound or feel as good to me so I change a lot of strings. You will get to where you...

    Being a Texas boy I always thought of Jerry Jeff was thought as a deity. I heard him so many times. The most memorable was in a bar in Amarillo during a blizzard with John Inman on guitar. The Mount...

    Re: Live from Here is no more

    That is a total downer. The show was exceptional and I loved the fact that a show like that existed in our current culture. I thought Thile was always captivating and the content wonderful.
