    Default Floodtone Mandolins

    Anyone know what happened to the Floodtone Mandolin web pages? I could not find them on Google. Wondering if the website is gone?

    Thanks

    I don't know if it is accurate or not but someone posted in another thread that he has quit building due to other demands for his time.

    I have a friend looking to start playing. He bought this one from the Classifieds here last week. $250 shipped: excellent deal. I restrung it for him and have been playing it a little. Really great tone and volume. Lots of sustain and low end. I'm sending it off to a local luthier for a thorough setup though. Action is a tad high for a beginner, and the intonation is off a bit. It holds tune well but some notes are out of pitch down the board, and bar chords sound like a mess. But once it's setup better it'll be a fine player.

    Odd that there is no label or marking of any kind. I'd not have known the maker if the seller hadn't said what it was. Seems a strange practice to me.
