Hi all -
I'm looking to purchase a new mandolin. I purchased a Michael Kelly A O mandolin from Musician's Friend, but was most unsatisfied with it and returned it. I've been playing mandolin for about 5 years, and am on a budget. I'm looking for an oval soundhole type. I've looked at the Kentucky KM 174 (I believe that's what it is), and that appears to be a nice instrument. I've found a online dealer that sets them up in his shop before shipping.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
