Hello mandolin cafe, I have a bit of a dilemma.
My father says he will buy me an instrument of my choice at the end of summer, and I don't know what too choose. He took me to guitar center down in Oxnard CA, and I fell in love with the nicest mando there which is the Washburn. I also read on Mr. Wishnevskys website that he makes an 18" Mandocello off of a jazz guitar body for $600. My father said that my budget up to around $650-$700. I really love the mandocello, even though i have never played one, I know I would enjoy it. Currently I have a Ibanez M510, it's an entry level mando and I would also enjoy the Washburn mandolin. IM TORN!!!
So MC, what would you do in my position? Any feedback is welcome!!
