    Re: what is the best selling mandolin.

    I can’t imagine that the “best selling” mandolin is in the $400 and above price range. I’d expect the answer to be something far less expensive, like a Rogue or something hanging on the wall of every...

    Re: Kay Mandolin A style F holes Mand-8

    You could get a lifetime flattop mandolin for less than your $1000 budget and a lifetime archtop if you could stretch to that $1500 number.

    Re: Free Waterloo Mandolin

    I love flattop mandolins, and I love Collings mandolins; therefore, I’d love to love a Collings flattop mandolin!

    Re: 99' F5 Fern info

    1999 is the early part of the Nashville era which is highly lauded. In terms of price, I’d expect something in the $5-6K range. As a point of reference, there’s an ad for a 2000 F5L in the...

    Re: Curt mangan Monel Strings

    I currently have them on both my Black archtop and my Poe flattop. I like monels, as in addition to longer life on the wound strings they also emphasize the fundamental with warmth at the expense of...

    Re: for people who don't have deep pockets.

    You can occasionally find a Flatiron A-style (from when they were owned by Gibson) or a Summit (whose builder Paul Schneider used to work for Gibson) at the top end of that budget if you monitor the...

    Re: Sawchyn for a newb?

    I think your ears will hear quite a difference, not only between the holes (oval versus f) but the construction (flattop versus carved) as well. I suspect that it will sound louder and more open from...

    Re: Sawchyn for a newb?

    Re: Sawchyn for a newb?

    I started on a similar flattop in a Mid-Missouri M0 because for comparable money to a factory import I could afford a mandolin built in a small shop domestically. And even after sampling a number of...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    I remember. I was just hoping, as with the radiused fretboard and adjustable truss rod, that they chose modern playability over historical accuracy.
