    If I recall correctly they are going for around $1500. I may be remembering wrong though. Look around the classifieds here, they show up periodically.

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    I don't like coffee. That's why there are many drinks. Don't like F styles? That's why there are many other choices. Do what you like. This is not meant to be snarky.

    Re: Finally My First Break/Solo

    Great start. Now learn a fiddle tune, like Old Joe Clark in the key of A. It's easy and will give you confidence. Thanks for posting for us.

    Re: What's the real difference?

    Bill got it right, the workmanship is much better and, usually, they sound much better. Also, in my experience, you grow out of a cheapo so it makes more sense to invest a little more in the...

    Re: Need mandolin recommendations a-style

    I have had good luck with some old teens Gibson A's. A lot of them are in your price range. I think they have a great mellow tone and are just neat.
