    Re: Powerful A models in the 5K range

    For A models the OP's budget hits such a sweet spot. Lots of options - all instruments that could be a life-time mandolin. I hope the OP is going out and playing as many as possible to find "the"...

    The Sorensen AX is not traditional in appearance and at the upper limits of your price range, but Steve will talk you through the sound that you are looking for and build options. I have a Sprite...

    Re: Kelley two-point mandolin

    I'm a sucker for two-point mandolins. That one is gorgeous & sounds great!

    I had a Red Diamond with that tailpiece, it worked well - but not as good as a James.

    I ripped/avulsed my quadriceps tendon (attached to the knee cap from the thigh) last summer. I ended up with a femoral nerve block and was discharged 18 hours after surgery with an indwelling...

    Re: Please define “intermediate”

    I've played mandolin off & on for 50 years, seriously for 20 (nudging various guitars out as my primary instrument). I've played semi-pro for years and still consider myself "intermediate" because...

    Re: Apitius Yorkville

    Aaron sounds great on that mandolin! But remember, it is often the archer and not the bow! I'm sure I would kinda sound like I sound on my current mandolins, but it is kind of a good thing that he...

    Re: NMD road trip!

    I'll bet that mandolin will distract you for a long time. Looks wonderful & sounds as good as it looks, I'd imagine!

    Graham: That is one spectacular looking mandolin. Unique from the endpin to the headstock. I'm sure that constructing the ribs wasextra hours of effort and especially with the lines of inlay...

    Congratulations on joining the Sorensen club. My Sprite keeps getting better and better, or I keep getting better and better at pulling the tone out of it.

    Re: MAS killer

    That is a rare mandolin, and like the bubonic plague (which is also rare these days), nobody is clamoring to get it!

    Congratulations - the Collings will either be a lifetime mandolin, a step on the slippery slope of MAS, or both. Enjoy it in good health and play the snot out of it!

    Re: Apitius Yorkville Jazz Mandolin

    Aaron: I think this mandolin compliments your bowties better than the Red Diamond! In all seriousness; a spiffy looking and great sounding mandolin, played by a master.
  24. Re: Flatiron A-5 Artist, 1,500 should I get it?

    I'm usually a trusting soul, but with some unidentified potential issues and a relatively low price, I'd probably pass on this one. The no return policy would certainly be the deal-buster for me.
