    Re: What's the best way to dust my fretboard?

    To be better specific, I use an old handkerchief. It’s very thin.

    Re: What's the best way to dust my fretboard?

    Just take a rag and slide it between the frets and the strings.

    Re: replacing Flatiron tail piece?

    Sam, I think the one sold at Greg Boyd’s are plated brass. It doesn’t take much to fit a cover. Also beeswax also works well to help keep a cover on.

    Nice octave Dave. Did you slot the fretboard yourself?

    Re: Tunes in "F"

    I really enjoyed your tune. Nice and bluesy. Fishers Hornpipe was usually played by fiddlers in the key of F. I tabbed out a mandolin version years ago. It lays out very nicely in F.

    Re: In honor of Bill's mandolins bday

    That's a good question. The binding certainly doesn't look like the normal side binding. The black line seems wider and is in the center of the binding instead of closer to the sides.

    Re: In honor of Bill's mandolins bday

    Yes, I'm aware of the many repairs it has had. I just don't think I ever noticed the black line so prominent.

    In honor of Bill's mandolins bday

    I watched this video today and never noticed the side binding on his mandolin before. The black purfling line seems unusually thick. What do you think?

    Re: Vernon Bryant Mandolin?

    If they are built by “the” Vern Bryant, you’d be wise to buy them all. Everyone I’ve ever seen and heard was a killer Loar sounding mandolin.

    This carved much easier than the quilted maple I recently finished. A beautiful piece of koa.

    Re: Sitka vs. Red Spruce in mandolins

    My personal mandolin which is number 50, has an engleman top. It’s one piece, wide, irregular grain, but the ring it had when tapped, is why I used it. I love the woody sound this mandolin has.
