    Re: F-2 purchase advice - Canada

    I think that I would also look for advice about years. I remember reading on the cafe that Gibson changed the neck angle around 1915 or 16 so that the later ones were better. Don't quote me on this...

    Re: Old vs New Oval

    Just for matter of interest, my Pomeroy neck is rounded, not v-shaped at all. Pomeroys are x-braced, however. Mike Black does both.

    Re: Work distraction

    You're all right, it is a great tonic for these times.

    Last night it was relatively warm here in Toronto and five of us had a jam around a backyard fire. I wore a mask even though we were outside...

    Re: Work distraction

    Brian, the Pomeroy is swell. Just a beautiful instrument. I've only had it a few months.

    Eric, I built that flat top. It came out quite well and I enjoy playing it. Use it for travel sometimes and when I visit schools for work. I posted it below, though I recarved the neck afterwards...

    Re: Types of Mandolin Collections
