  4. Re: How Has Collings' MT-2 Line Changed Over Time

    Re: Do you name your instruments?

    Re: Pickguard or no pickgaurd?

    I don't really think that I need a pickguard for playing but something I do with my pinkie really tears up the tops of my mandolins. I don't plant it but sort of lightly touch the top and I guess...
  9. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?

    Playing mandolin has greatly enriched my guitar playing, I think. It seems like two different areas of my brain are communicating so that when I learn something on one, it isn't long before it...

    Re: Mandolin In Elvis Songs?

    Re: Informal Poll
