  8. Re: Mandolin Tasting: Gibsons, Buckeye, Duff, Northfiled

    Gabriel, what fun! Thank you.

    Re: Neck reinforcement vs a truss rod

    This gets to the question I wish I knew enough geometry, math and engineering to ask: What is the magic in such a design? Is there some angle here that ends up with the neck being in a central axis,...
