    There's nothing in the liner notes (I just grabbed the album with this on it)....there's definitely a mandolin already in there if I'm not mistaken. Maybe learn the mandolin part and have a guitar...

    Less expensive F-style, try The Loar 520 or 500. I love my 500....both are sunburst finish though.

    Re: Newbie with A great problem to have

    I love my Loar 500, got it from Folk Musician. It's awesome, and I think it can be had for a little under what you're looking to spend.
