    Re: Breedlove AM OF

    Wow, Nick -- that's an awesome guitar! The color, the bridge, the pickguard! Now that you mention it, though, I see that it needs two more markers... :)

    Thanks, Mike, it's great to see the...

    Re: Help dating Harmony Monterey?

    Thanks, William and Nick! This one must have been hiding when the date stamps were handed out. Inside the bass f-hole it has 4790H417 in blue ink clear as day; from other posts, I understand this is...

    Help dating Harmony Monterey?

    I recently picked up this Harmony Monterey, and it doesn't have a date stamp inside. It's so clean that I guessed it must be fairly recent, but it has an older-style logo and lower-ratio tuners. It...

    Re: Who has just one?

    For some reason (not willing to pay for the therapy to explain it), I'm not comfortable having more than one of anything. Dishes and underwear excepted.

    Re: Case Question/Guitar

    I keep a $500 guitar in a $100 case. If I had a custom guitar, I might spring for a $500 case. (But that will never happen in my case.)

    It mutes the strings behind the bridge, suppressing any harmonic overtones that may occur there. A very familiar concept in the mandolin world. Many use a simple strip of leather wound through the...
  18. Re: Hi and what about my beautiful Weymann mandolute?

    For the model number, look at the very tippy-top edge of the headstock; it might be stamped there, along with a serial number. The model number is the shorter of the two. Our Weymann experts can...
