    Re: My new Aria M-300

    That hump in the neck where it joins the body, and the extreme elevation of the bridge adjustment nuts, are dead giveaways. That mandolin ain't never gonna work. Send it back, get your money back. ...

    Re: Starting to see the difference

    IMHO mandolin is linear, guitar and banjo chordal.
