    One time I bought a $70 fiddle to learn to play fiddle, and you know what? I learned a few tunes, and it was fun, and got something nicer later on.

    Re: Mandolins for 6k and under?

    I'll put in a vote for Capek. Doyle Lawson has a couple. They are top quality from the Czech republic. My student has one, and it's a high quality professional mandolin.
