MandoMutt’s Return Policy We offer a 48 hour Approval period on all instrument purchases, but not on trade deals. If you purchase an instrument from us and decide within 48 hours of receipt that it’s not for you, you may return it to us, no questions asked. Buyer is responsible for all shipping fees in event of a return. Additionally, we only accept a return if the instrument is returned in the exact condition as when it left our hands. We will not accept returns if any alterations or modifications of any kind, have been made to the instrument. This includes truss rod adjustments, bridge adjustments or any other alteration, modification or adjustment.

A word about the MandoMutt Beyond Beast Award. As many of our frequent visitors know, our very best instruments may receive the much coveted Beyond Beast Award. You may wonder, just how do we determine a Beyond Beast. We actually have a 30 point number system and six categories, with five being the highest and one being the lowest score in each category. An instrument must score a 28 out 30, or better to be recognized as a Beyond Beast. The six categories are: 1) Tone 2) Volume 3) Fit and Finish 4) Set up and Playability 5) Appointments (bling?) 6) Cosmetic Condition (wear and tear)

Today’s Bible Verse;

Matthew 28:5-6

5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Quote for the day;We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams

Question of the day; Why is a back itch always just out of reach?

Thought for the day: The Boys of Summer have returned. I love baseball. It’s still the All American sport, at least in my mind. I’ve lived in North Carolina since 1975, but grew in near Jarrettsville, Md around 25 miles north of Baltimore (or Balmer to the natives). I also grew up in Memorial Stadium, which is long gone, but not forgotten. My dad used to take me to see many games at Memorial. When I was eleven, he took me to Game 3 of the 1971 World Series. The Orioles against the Reds. The Big Red Machine. Johnny Bench, Pete Rose and all those guys. My team, the Orioles won that game and eventually, they were World Champs. In the game I attended with my dad, the O’s pitcher hit a Grand Slam. To this day, that pitcher, Dave McNally, is the only pitcher to ever hit a Grand Slam in the Series. It’s these kind of special memories that kids will never, ever forget.

My son, now 26 years of age, and I travel to Baltimore at least once every year, to attend several games at Camden Yards, We continue the tradition and share memories. Perhaps this will be the year that we’ll be able to attend a World Series game in Baltimore, just as my dad and I did 46 baseball seasons ago.

Ain’t baseball great?
