    2) If you use a smartphone, there are fretboard...

  4. Re: Would an all laminated mandolin survive in a car?

    The answer is yes-ish.

    Re: So HOW BAD is the Fender?

    My 2 cents:
    First, be excited and grateful!
    Second, get it set up and play the heck out of it.
    Third, save for a better one as your skills progress, but keep this one around! It will come in...

    My experience: I bought a $60 Stagg at a street fair just to see if I really liked playing mandolin and would stick with it.
