Did you ever hear from that guy who, in his member page picture, looked like he was playing a sunburst mando like yours? His name is Dale VanCleef and I saw his site and saw your message asking if it was a Rhapsody...I friended him and he never responded! Just curious...it sure did look like yours only sunburst! Ed
Good morning...I just loved your comment on the Watching the River Run video!!! I fell off my chair laughing! You're right, it did need bass and so did everything else that day...where were you?!?!?!? Hope to see you at rehearsal this week! Ed
The mandolin in that picture is an old plywood POS that a guy loaned to me 30 years ago... then he moved away. It says GLOBAL on the headstock. It had damaged tuners and no nut when I got it. A "qualified technician" grooved the zero fret while trying to get the nut right. I usually only use it (and my Martin Backpacker) in camping situations. --Dale
