    Default Musician's Friend Stupid Deal of the Day (2013-03-12)

    http://www.musiciansfriend.com/stupid/

    The Michael Kelly MKLFSTB Legacy Festival Mandolin Tobacco Burst for $349.

    I have no connection to this deal - I just thought it was interesting to see a mandolin deal come up on this site.

    Hard to beat a hand-carved, solid wood F-model for less than $400. MK's don't get a lotta respect for their acoustic sound, but this is a bargain by almost any standard.

    If you can perform a Monroe "ala scrape' " with a good pocket knife on that triple dipped lacquer finish they turn out sounding pretty darn good.

    Maybe its me but it sure seems that the Mando is getting a lot more mainstream attention these days.

    I have a MK A solid that I've played for about 8 years. It's not in the same league as my Weber, but it was a great instrument to learn on and sounds much better than pretty much any other entry-level mandolin I've ever played. I still play it all the time and my 9 year old loves to jam on it. I know that the consistency is not necessarily there with MK mandolins (and I think I got a good one by luck) but it is hard to beat for under $350. The tuners are Grovers, so it stays in tune, which I think is the biggest problem I've seen with some instruments this cheap.

    Why stop with the scrape ?... smash it like he did, maybe some of the lacquer will come off when its rebuilt..
