I have been reading a lot on hear about this type of mando or that brand is good for bluegrass or celtic etc. I don't play celtic. As close to bluegrass as I am interested in is Steve Earle or Avett Brothers. Looking to upgrade my mando and even more so to pick up an octave mando. Nowhere good here to go try out anything but asian imports they carry at GC and Sam Ash so will likely be buying through the internet. Advice please.
I am primarily a guitar, dobro lap steel player. Would also use this mando and octave mando for praise music at church.
