Re: Suggestions for Mid-priced Octave Mandolins
I bought a new Lafferty from The Mandolin Store that I really like - mahogany back and sides it has a really nice tone. Still getting used to the 21" neck.
1918 Gibson A, "Lillian";
1940s (?) Kay A style f hole - currently down for a refret and fretboard re-profile, my first attempts (with guidance) at lutherie.
1981 Washburn M7SN (2 point);
2011 Eastman 504, "Belle";
2012 Lafferty mahogany octave mandolin;
