    Re: DolinmanX

    Another little gem! It seems a pity that the camera position screens you and the guitar player - I would have liked to see you playing your mandolin breaks on this one.

    Re: What should I do with that mandolin?

    Three points I see from your photos: The nut slots need deepening as the strings are very high above the first fret; this will affect your intonation. The bridge is too far back towards the...
