    Re: Another Tone Guard question

    Agree with the group. Tone Guards stay on. I use both Bobelock and Recurve cases. No prob. Like anything, carefully and gently does it - especially when it comes to a musical instrument.

    Re: Two questions about Big Mons....

    Re: Do you insure your instruments?

    "A" strings don't stay tuned

    I have a 2019 Big Mon. One of the things I most enjoyed about it for a long time after its purchase was how stable the tuning stayed during a gig. It seemed with a reasonably new set of strings,...

    Re: Need some advice on a tuner pedal
