I have several mandolins I can sell you for under $250.00 including strap and case. Feel free to email email@example.com if you are interested. However, I will be out of the country next week.
My selection in the under $250.oo range includes Asian A-models with solid wood top, sides and back. I have Yasuma, Aria, Kentucky, Ibanez.
(regarding the $215.00 KM-250S, I would not sell mine for that - I just love it! Although considering that it has a fishman pickup and it was made in Japan it does have a somewhat different pedigree - ha.)
