    Re: Post a picture of what's on your bench?

    Love it! I also am enjoying the scenery behind it. I really enjoy sailing small boats like this one, more so even than larger boats. Sailing dinghies have an immediacy about them that make them so...

    Re: Post a picture of what's on your bench?

    Hi Gary,

    Thanks for posting this. I really like this purfling and am tempted to try something similar on an upcoming build.

    I have not been binding mine because I really like to show off the...

    Re: A new release from my band

    Hello Diptanshu,

    Thanks for posting this. It is another great example of the versatility of the mandolin. This diminutive instrument really can make a home for itself in any genre. Having heard...

    Re: RIP Nanci Griffith

    I am deeply saddened to learn of Ms. Griffith's death. I have gotten such joy and inspiration from her music for many years. I wish all the best to her family and all those who cared for her.

    Re: Andy Statman Bought A Loar F5!

    I am really glad for him. He has given us all so much pleasure through his playing. Inspiration, too. I hope this instrument provides him with the same.

    Re: a bengali song for you guys!

    Hi Diptanshu,

    Thanks for posting this, I really enjoyed it. I hope you are keeping well and safe. What can you tell us about this song? To my ears, it sounds kind of Western. Also, is that a...

    Re: Nugget Tailpiece on Flat-Top

    Good idea, Drew. I've been thinking about this issue since the sleeve postings came up (well, not non-stop, on and off:grin:) and realized that I always roll up my shirt sleeves slightly when...

    Re: Can of air

    I'm with you, Ky. I try to keep them reasonably clean, but no need to obsess over it. They are meant to be played.

    Re: Nugget Tailpiece on Flat-Top

    Hi Don,

    Nope, not at all. In fact, it never dawned on me that it could be a problem but now that you mention it, I can see how that could happen. Perhaps the difference could have to do with the...

    Re: Nugget Tailpiece on Flat-Top

    Hi Rick,

    I make my own bridges. They are loosely based on Red Henry designs but are not the same as his designs, and I am still experimenting. This mandolin is my 'Franken-mandolin' on which I...

    Nugget Tailpiece on Flat-Top

    I was just changing strings on my flat-top and noticing how quickly it goes since I put a Nugget (by Northfield) tailpiece on this mandolin. I thought I'd give a quick post on this tailpiece in case...

    Life's too short to wrestle with the 'me or the mandolin' issue, or to stick with a mandolin that doesn't thrill you. Try out others as available, find one that seems right and buy it. If it turns...

    I'll post some case solutions for you as soon as I can take some photos, probably tomorrow.

    EDIT: On second thought, I'll PM you. It's kind of off the topic of the thread.

    Re: Georgia On My Mind - Eastman/Schertler

    Hi Maxr,

    I really like it. I use it on my OM, flat top and arch top mandolins, and flat and arch top piccolo mandolins and in each instance, I hear the specific voice of that instrument coming...
  25. Re: What price level and up gets you a "lifelong keeper" mandolin

    In my opinion, it is not about price, it is about relationship. Sure, 'relationship' may not be a term some would apply to an inanimate object, but for me, musical instruments are a special case. I...
