      Lots of folks will register, only one will win.

      But... brace for impact. There are two more high end mandolins coming up as giveaways in the next 2-3 months, and a smokin' hot Schertler amp (our opinion) and possibly other stuff. It's a brisk schedule of giveaways, easily the best ever.

      <3 those tiger stripes on the back! That's one sexy (untouchable) mandolin.

      Think of all the heads turning when strumming/picking that beast, and I am missing an F holed mandolin. Should send that over to Idaho. /hint

      All you guys out there drooling all over your screens: Look again. It's an f-holer. You don't want no f-holer. Wait for the MT2O giveaway. Don't be entering this giveaway. No sense in it. And worksmanship? Shoot, look at the back of that thing; if that isn't the sloppiest looking paint job - they couldn't even get the paint on evenly. And heck, the neck is worse.

      I'll save you guys from having to look at that ugly thing every day. Just wait for the next giveaway. Don't enter this one.

      Okay, I'm trying to figure my odds. I wonder how many people are likely to enter?
