    I do love the way they sound on his videos.

    His prices have started to rise, but that is why I suggested he get in touch with Matt and find out what his current prices are.

    Decided to tack this on instead of starting a new thread. Has there ever been more underd $3000 f style mandolins for sale in the classifieds? Some good looking instruments out there for the budget, relatively speakng, buyer. I mean, two grand hand made mandolin?

    Br1ck absolutely true! I think so, though I never was looking at them ready to buy at this price before. It does seem that there is a great stock of wonderful options. Good point! I am sure others will have thoughts...

    I chose this Flatiron Festival 2001 Nashville born with large fretwire and a pure K and K pro install. Great guy to deal with. Thanks for all the ideas and help. Great community! Now the wait begins.

    Larry Muth quotes 3,150 for an f-style mandolin. That's Canadian dollars, so today it'd be $2455. I'd confirm the price, but that's his web page.

    You can get a used Yellowstone F for $3K with a little patience, I sold my Bitterroot to pay a bill and later got my Black Ice (dressed up Yellowstone) and play it way more and have not looked back. Though I love the Bitterroot, if you have the $3K, get a Yellowstone.

    I am biased toward Weber over Collings, though I appreciate Collings as a worthy "comparable", but not worth what they want for an F. Probably some Collings fans that feel the complete opposite. Bruce is my man, so always will be a Weber guy.

    Maybe road trip it to Carter's in NashVegas, and kick some tires................ worth the trip.

    Just saw you got one, after sending above message............................ great Flatty, enjoy! Fantastic vibe to that piece !!

    This is why I find it worthy of spending for air freight. Why torture yourself and waste a weekend you could be playing?

    My Flatty arrived and she was exactly as described. I polished her, changed the strings to new J74's and took a photo or two. I named it "Iris" an alliteration with "Iron". Thanks again for all the help in selecting.
