If that's the case then you're fine. Doesn't matter if it's from Korea or wherever. The mandolin I played for the first two months was a "Cameo" that my dad picked up for 50 bucks at a pawnshop, it had (literally) a 1/4 inch action at the 12th. After a little more than a year and a half since that mando and I parted ways I think I still have some of the original calluses from that thing.
