    Are you thinking of buying this one form the classifieds for $900?

    Looks to be a nice instrument.
    Here's a video that I found of it. Sounds pretty good to me.


    Looks like pricing on those start at $1200

    I'm frankly amazed that a hand built F5, USA made, would go for that low.

    I contacted the seller. I was going to take a chance on it at that price, but decided not to buy, due to the flat fingerboard. Some people love a flat fretboard, some don't. I've bought several great sounding mandolins that didn't have radiused fingerboards, thinking I'd get used to it, but it never happened.
