My question, in a nutshell, is at what price point does the buyer get the most mandolin for the cost? I know there are $100.00 dream mandos and $20,000.00 not-so-dreamy mandos, but in general at what price range do you get the most consitant sound and playability? I understand that A-styles have a different price range than F-styles, therefore the "sweet spot" would be different. I was thinking $1500-$2500 for A's and 4-6k for F's?
Thanks for your input and thoughts on this!
