Great group you've got here. I'm new, both to the mandolin and to the group.
I am learning on what was described as a 100-ish year old A style instrument that seems awfully hard to play. On loan from a friend. It has not been cared for at all, may be warped or otherwise disfigured, etc. I'm saving for my first mandolin and shopping around.
I was wondering if there are any accepted standards (or ranges) with respect to string heights. I've played guitar for a few years, and have seen this debated to death by various authorities. Measured down to the thousandth of an inch, with automotive feeler gauges, etc.
P.S. Sorry if this has been covered somewhere. I didn't see it, and I almost never have luck with the search function on message boards...
