    Getting near the finish line.

    I have been foolin’ with this over a good many years. Last week some force overtook me and I sprang for the fretwire and binding and am racing towards the finish line, pun or not. Thanks, Luthier's...

  11. Re: Looking for some insight into microtonal mandolin

    Any mandolin player can have a microtonal string course ... just resist the urge to tune your mandolin and you'll be playing microtonally before you know it.

    Very happy for you!

    Re: New string formula?

    I'm a fan of Curt Mangan strings, but I never liked the sound or feel of the EXP strings. I find the uncoated Mangans last for a long time, easily as long as any coated strings I've used. I have had...

    Design flaw indeed. Just about every Eastman we sold from our store had this problem. Too bad, because these are otherwise very good mandolins for the money.

    Re: Wood Identification
