Re: Breedlove VS. higher end Pac-Rim imports.
If you believe in serendipity, divine providence, or something along those lines, then you're going to be a really happy camper with whichever mandolin you choose, because you know that you will enjoy it more than the other one.

2) You buy the Weber. Once you get it and give it a chance to open up --- and I don't know about other mando players, but I think that new Breedloves begin to open up faster than new Webers do --- you realize that you really liked the Breedlove better. So, you'll enjoy the Weber, but often think about the one that got away.
