    Re: $200 to dress mandolin frets? Ouch!

    I don't think $200 for a fret dressing and a new nut would not be out of line for a shop. A shop does have more expenses than a one man repair shop doing it in his home shop. But I could not justify...

    Re: Kentucky KM-1050 vs Northfield F5S

  11. Re: Does this seem reasonable for a first mandolin?

    I have never played a Loar mandolin but if I were going that route I would spend a few extra $$ and call the Mandolin Store - They will be honest and treat your fairly. You will also get a mandolin...

    You feel bad for the guy thinking he has a mandolin worth $7K when it is worth 1/4 or less? And then we wonder where people come up with ridiculous prices on instruments for sale.
