What does everyone think of this one? Looks like the luthier that built it did so just like it was a little flattop guitar. Hard to tell from the YouTube video what the sound would really be like, the guy isn't much of a player (which he admits) and it isn't even in tune. The closest parallel I can think of is a Tacoma? Hard to tell really without examining it in person but judging by the picture the maker had some skill, and it's dirt cheap for a luthier made mandolin. But it just isn't what most of us would think of as a mandolin!
