    Default Brand?

    I have posted a couple pictures for a friend who is trying to find out what the brand of his mandolin is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Photos of instruments normally work better if the light source is in front of the instrument (behind your back), not behind the subject.. When the light source is behind the subject the light meter usually reads the lightest area (in this case the glare) and the subject, the mandolin, is often washed out and lacks detail.

    The photography aside, the logos indicate it is a Samick brand mandolin.
