What do you think?  A nice simple website.  I tried to learn CSS stuff, but couldn't figure out how to get a page up to work on in the program I got.  see

Dayum, Steve, I like it. It's fun, and it gets the point across.

Them crazy fret-pickers should love it.

Sounds cool.  What about fret dressing?  Under step 1 or would that be a separate item/charge?  Seems like that's the only thing I really saw missing in the overall setup.  I guess a typical setup involves:  truss rod adj.; fret dress; nut adj.; fit bridge feet; and saddle grooves and spacing.  My only concern about the tuning part is the warranty issue, but if you're doing this on new mandos you sell, I'd think no prob.  Plus, LOTS of mandos are bought used and this wouldn't be an issue.  I noticed the statement about minute amounts of material taken away.  I could see some folks worried about this issue.

This is beyond setup.  I just end up doing bits of setup to get things working well enough to balance out.  I can't see any warranty issue - can't tell anything has been done by looking.  Very light touch, very delicate.  Works amazingly well.

Same stuff I do on violins.  Only different.

I think it's very interesting.  You put it out on the 'cafe yet? Curious to see what those folks' responses will be.

Those Eastmans are getting some great reviews by users out there.  That's exciting.

I'm getting hits from there.  Only on my signature at the bottom.  Getting lots of his and people have commented on the technique before.  They like it.  It is in essense what I do to violins.  But mandolins required some evolution.  Or creation of new stuff.  However you want to see it.
