Just took delivery of my first Bulldog mandolin. I got the Econo A style and it is a piece of art. Elegant simplicity is the best way to sum it up. Great sound too!!! I'll be picking up a Econo F style as soon as funds permit. Barry and Sabine are great people too. On our first meeting, I felt like I've know them forever. So, I've got a great mandolin and new friends. Life is good.
