Re: Anyone else own a Hohner?
I bought one in January of 08, as my first mandolin. Mine cost all of $150, was a laminate in red, an accoustic-electric, and played just fine (for that ilk), especially for the money. A couple of pros I know were surprised. Served me well for awhile, until I develop MAS, and got an Eastman. I've loaned the Hohner to my 20 something nephew, who's wailing away on it with youthful vigor.
I do want it back someday!
