Thanks for the review, Bill. I don't feel that it's out of line for Bill or any member, pro or not, vendor or not, to express an opinion about what they like. The price is a little steep for me, but I'm not ruling them out! I'd also like to say that it would be great if some saddle expert would look into making a compensated set for the classic vintage Fender electric mandolin (unofficially, the "Mandocaster"). An excellent machinist make me a set which are a big improvement over the stock uncompensated mando saddles. He didn't have the instrument in hand, though, and worked off my measurements, so I think that they could intonate even better. There aren't too many old Fender mandolins around, so I believe that it would mostly be a labor of love. Sorry for the micro hijack.
