    Re: Mazzacarra Lucia model mandolin

    The price on the Classico A's is considerably higher and I am not sure if that higher price significantly changes sound / playability. I will research the "Mozzani" school as I know nothing about it...

    Yes, the carbon fiber and arm rests on his restorations are a surprise - but functionality/longevity is apparently his aim. The new Lucia models are a different ball game. I have heard only very...

    Hello August -
    Could you elaborate on lack of availability of ideal picks (definitely a sub-neophyte inquiry here). Thank you.
