Re: Searching for a new Mandolin - UK Based
JayA....so did you get the AM-370? I have a brand new The Loar 500 that I love, but I eventually want to get an F4, and they seem tough to get for someone with limited funds. Pretty much the only ones I have looked at are Eastman 514(?) I think it is, and the Ashbury which is easily the cheapest F4 option I have found. Having had it almost 3 months can you elaborate on how you are liking it? I'm on the American side of the pond, but Hobgoblin has a US website with the Ashbury.
