    Great interview. How about pictures of the two banjos- the Vega Tuba-phone #3 especially!

    Hi Dawg—All musicians have key musical moments in their lives. I had two of 'em: when I first heard the Beatles (1964), and the DG Quintet (1979). Other great artists have come along, but no one else (for me, at least) had that unique kind of energy. Thanks ever so much, dude.

    When in a musical quandry I ask myself the question WWDD?
    Been listening to, admiring and being inspired by the DAWG since the 70s.
    I play along w/ Traversata every day.
    Thanks to DAWG for a lifetime well spent.

    And Stephane Grappelli's piano playing! I had no idea. What a treat.

    On page two of this article, after we see some of his mandolins, Dawg says "and you thought you had MAS!!" I think that at this level of musicianship owning these mandolins is more of a right than a syndrome! Thanks for all of the great music David.

    Thanks, Ted, for getting this together. A great evening read. Dawg is a flat out cool cat. The picture of him, Jethro and Tiny is awesome.

    I think the interview speaks for itself. And it calls for a sequel.

    What I like most is the love for musical instruments that despite being not "the holy grail" have pretty special qualities. I´m thinking about Rudy Cippola´s Strad-O-Lin for example. Maybe these instruments are the "howly grail".

    Additionaly the music is downright awesome. I have allways admired Mr. Grisman´s aproach at recording music as something dynamic and alive that sometimes will be worth listening to even though one might hear technical/mechanical/musical flaws.

    The photo of Ralph on the cover of the Greenbriar Boys Ragged But Right album is where I learned my first chop chord. I copied Ralph's fingering of a Bb chord and used it up and down the fingerboard for a while as my only chop chord.

    Whatever happened to the Dawg L&H style 5. The pictures of the prototype are breath taking.

    It was discontinued, it's the DGM-3. I've drooled over those pics in the interview many times. They seem pretty scarce on the used market. Here ya go: https://www.mandohangout.com/classified/10091

    Seems almost a crime the way that seller clutters up that gorgeous headstock with his untrimmed ends.

    I owned a DMG, it was the best tone of the 15 or mandolas that I’ve had the opportunity to play. It is missed
