I linked the thread below as I posted pictures of my Gold Tone a couple of months ago. I have been very pleased with this mid-line mandolin. It is LOUD and very good on the treble side. The sustain is medium and the base is a little light (for my taste), but overall worth more than I paid for it. I had a freind here on the cafe play my Gold Tone and he was surprised at the quality and tone. He owns a BRW. So that is high praise, indeed. Please email me anytime if you have questions. If you would like to play mine, we could work out something in that area, too. It is for sale as I need to get rid of some of my toys. Please click below to see my Gold Tone.
