Re: A-Style vs F-Style - Is there a sound difference?
The placebo effect makes those who like F styles think they sound better. The opposite effect holds for fans of the A style. If there are differences in sound, and these differences in sound are different than those between mandolins made out of similar woods and similar construction by the same builder, I would say the differences in sound between body shape would be very subtle IF at all.
