The first Mandolin I bought, was the Kentucy (Saga Music Company) KM 620B. I bought it primarily because it seemed sound enough to learn on, and its' low price.
As long as you keep the action where it should be, I don't see why you wouldn't do well with it as a "starter" but if you are ready to move up from the Kentucky (when the dollars permit, primarily) I'd steer you to other models.
Having said that, I am not one of those: "you gotta get yourself a 1923 F5 Gibson" kinda people. Not that they are wrong, but the price is the issue.
It is sort of like getting a Honda Shadow, (like I had.....it was all I could afford at the time) -vs- buying a Harley Classic.
Music is not the most important thing in life, but it sure is at the top of the list!! -SC
