    If I "HAD" to pick just one in your price range, it would be a Girouard !

    Congrats on your new mandolin! Post some photo's if you get a chance.

    It's so hard to help someone pick an A-style for $2000 when they really want an F-style for $3400! Enjoy that White, Steve. I've been impressed with every one of Tyler's mandolins that I've seen and heard, and I think that it's especially cool that you were able to buy from (and support) a local builder.

    That's ok. You know there are a few others out there looking for the same thing.

    I'd snag a Silverangel if I could.
