    How fun! I've only been at mandolin for a year and I'm not sure what a mandola is but after listening to the video I want one!

    Re: Help with decision

    Any particular reason that you have limited yourself to those two? The reason I ask is because if you are considering buying those new then it puts you into a budget area where you might consider...

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    Way to go Sue, a new Morris in addition to the old Stradolin! So, I guess it is time to modify the title of this thread from a question 'Is this how it starts?' to a statement 'This is how it starts'...

    Re: Received my Ebay Stradolin

    Ha, the candy wrapper was actually a tube rolling around in the cavity of the instrument. The only way that it could have ended up there if it was put thru one of the circles of the F hole. I was...

    Re: Received my Ebay Stradolin

    Received my Ebay Stradolin

    I've had an urge to tinker lately and after reading about Stradolins I decided to get one and it arrived yesterday and I'm in the process of cleaning it up. I think that it is a solid top with...
  10. Re: Hello All. I'm new here, first post. Loving the mandolin.

    Hi Elroy,

    I think you've got a great mandolin to start your journey on! I began in earnest myself in November and started with an MD505 and thought it was great. Considering that one of the go to...

    Re: Help with upgrade, please

    You chose well Jim. I was going to mention the importance of considering a radiused fretboard since you are coming over from guitar (which have radiused fretboards) but you checked that box with the...

    A little late but here is my NMD post

    I got it 6 weeks or so ago, an off the shelf Sawchyn Beavertail mandolin, purchased directly from Peter Sawchyn in Canada. He was great to deal with and I really love the mandolin.

    Re: poor quality or MAS?

    Well, I for one, feel the OP chose very well and picked an instrument that for that price point is very often recommended here as a no brainer. This forum is not a place where we belittle others...
  18. Re: Loar 520E, Kentucky 630, Loar 590E or Eastman 315

    So, I think that if you are buying new then I would get the Eastman 315. I actually would advise you to look at the MD305 (unless you are attached to getting a scroll) as you get more mando for your...
