Hey there!

After a long absence I am considering getting into mandolin playing properly for the first time. I am tossing up between a second hand Furch mandolin (which is close to me in Europe) versus buying a Big Muddy M-7. Both are about the same price, but the Furch has rosewood, whereas the Big Muddy M-7 only has Ebony, so I might be able to bypass the issues around CITES traveling (I travel a fair bit). Would anyone recommend one over the other? Thanks.
