    Dots on 5, 7, 10. You can recognize the 12 since it's at the body. I thought skipping the 12th dot was typical on a 12-to-the-body instrument, but looking at the 12-to-the-body instruments on my wall...

    Wasps get a bad rap - they're pollinators and they take out the really nasty bugs. Unless they're in the way where they'll cause problems it's generally best to leave them bee. Not welcome in the...

    That's likely accurate and fairly common. The melody isn't limited to the notes in the harmonized chords.

    The Vorson/Clearwater has mini-single coil pickups. Your best bet to find others that size may be pickups for a four-string cigar-box guitar.

    I'm not dissing the mando-lele as it's own thing, but it's not a mandolin and doesn't play the same. If the goal is "I'm trying to learn mandolin" then get a mandolin.

    A soprano ukulele is a closer approximation to a mandolin than a tenor - they're both about 13" scale length. Tenor is 17", similar to a mandola (CGDA). A baritone matches to an octave mandolin at...

    I set up my Vorson the same as I set up my Strat. You may be able to get away with lower action on a uke since the shorter string will wobble less (assuming the same tension, which probably isn’t the...
