Thread Name: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
Subject: RE: Mandolin Mudcatters survey
Is the mandolin your primary instrument or a sideline? Sideline. Guitar is my true love.

Do you perform regularly with others/are you part of an organized group? Used to be, but not currently.

What type of music do you play? Mix of Irish, old-time, bluegrass & swing.

What style would you LIKE to be playing? Hot Club style jazz.

What type/style/brand of mandolin do you own. A Flatiron flat-top (copy of the old Gibson Army-Navy model) built a year or two before Gibson bought Flatiron.

Are you happy with your mandolin? It sounds great for what I use it for, but I've had to have one neck reset and will probably need another if I keep the instrument many more years. I don't think the overall design is very durable. Gibson must agree with me since they no longer make them.
