    What is MAS?

    From context Iím guessing it means Mandolin Acquisition Syndrome. If so, I am definitely suffering from it! Been playing for hardly any time and already want more.

    Is this really worth $70k?

    I'm new here, and was just browsing the classifieds, and found this. Is this really worth $70k? That seems...insane, even for a collector. Who would dare play such a valuable instrument? Just curious.
