I know everyone says go play them all and then decide but if you are a lefty, there are few if any to play. I'm going to be able to spend less than 2K. As I see it, my options are MK or custom built A Style. I have identified 4 builders who will do an A style in my price range (Newell, Old Wave, Silver Angel, Muth). I would be interested in any comments about their mandolins and also if you think I have missed any builders.
