Re: OM and the 1 11/16 nut width?

I have an OM3HG with 1 3/4" nut and a D3 with 1 11/16" nut. I switch back and forth with no problem. If I'm going to finger/hybrid pick, it's always the OM. For some reason the D3 doesn't feel a lot smaller, which probably has to do with the D3 neck's profile. Both are very comfortable to play. As G...

Re: Bridge Pin Question

Indigo, I have an OM3HG from 2000 that has serious play and gig time on it. I bought it used (from MandoBros) when it was about a year old. Seemed unplayed. I played it regularly in an acoustic duo and band. After about 9 months the bass took a noticeable and sudden increase. This was noticed by two...
