Hey guys, I hope this isn't already covered in some other thread, but I couldn't find it.
My Epiphone mandolin's nut recently cracked (due to an unfortunate drop). I really don't feel like pouring too much money into repairing it as it wasn't that great of an instrument anyway. I think I'd much rather save up and buy a decent instrument. I know $700 isn't much in the mandolin world, but I'm mostly an (electric) bass player and mandolin is more of a hobby for me than a profession (like bass is for me).
I play acoustic bass guitars made by Michael Kelly and they are great quality for the price and if their mandolins are the same I would consider saving the extra $300 to get one of their products. Any suggestions?
