    Yeah, UU looks like a 1990s bulletin board but that's part of the charm. It's like a time machine and I feel like I'm 25 years younger! But I suppose the retro features and appearance are...

    Sometimes they're called needle files. They're just small files for precision work on small pieces. Often made in Switzerland, hence Swiss files here in the States. I have a set, Craftsman Needle...

    I've played my friend's solid mahogany grand tenor many times and the 1.5" nut feels comfy to me. The flat thin neck isn't my cup 'o tea—I prefer thicker ones—but some love it. It has a sweet mellow...
