I have recently made a purchase of a 1996 Flatiron Performer F. It is scheduled to be delivered on Friday (February 10). This is very exciting, I saved for a long time to be able and make this purchase. I will have three days to decide whether or not to keep this mandolin. Are there any other pickers out there playing Performer F? I would like to hear all opinions and any information anyone has on these instruments. Thank you.
