Many, many times I've read Board advice, particulary when funds are limited, that it is better to buy a good quality "A" rather than a mediocore "F". #Now, this seems to make good sense. #After all, we all want great tone and solid construction that will stand the test of time.
But, I'm also wondering how many of those who give that advice, in fact, own Scrolls. #I don't mean to critize, but it's easy to recommend second best when you (yourself) own the best.
Guess I'm feeling a little frustrated because I've been playing mando for over 20 years and have yet to be able to afford a "quality" Scroll. #With "F" prices now going above $2500, and in many cases way above that, I doubt that I ever will be able to afford (or at least justify) that expenditure. #However, that does not diminish my desire to own an "F". #So, I will probably, at some point, spring for an modistly priced MK or Eastman Scroll, even though I could buy a better guality "A" for equal to or less money.
What is it about the lure of a Scroll that WE just can't seem to resist?
