I was bought a Turner F-Style mandolin as a present a few months ago and wondered if anyone knows much about them. The Label says 'Handcrafted pro Series model MM215'. I know it cost around £200 new in the UK but haven't seen any others around.
Also, any thoughts on the best pickup/preamp setup for this kind of instrument would be greatly appreciated. So far I've looked at the Fishman and Schatten pickups but don't really know much about it. I've bitten the bullet and ditched the guitar in favour of the mandolin in my band and our first gig is in a few weeks.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
