I went the banjo route but a fiddle or mandolin could be next ...

That's great!

I've always wanted to play mandolin, but I kinda doubt I will. Too many other instruments calling my name.

Enjoy it, PD!

Hi, I used to play mandolin quie a lot, but not for some time.

mine is a Czech made "Lebeda" built, I think in 2005. I went through a number of them back in my bluegrass days, going up in quality bit by bit but thins one is my last.

I have also recently restring it with D'Addario Nickel Bronze strings a shown in your picture.

Stache is my favorite poster. I love his taste in music, his performances, his instructional and informational videos, our mutual love of 12 fret dreadnoughts. Heís the best.

If you guys want to turn this into a Stache lovefest I am all aboard.
