    Are you talking about Dewayne Baggett from Tallapoosa, Georgia? If so, I know Dewayne and have owned 3 different Baggetts over the years. They've all sounded very good, but the ones I've had never quite played just right for me. That's not to say that they are not a good mandolin for their price point though. I would certainly ask for a 48 hour trial period at a minimum.

    Yes, That's the person.
    He builds them himself? Not from a kit? I like what I see and just want to get more info. on his process.
    I really want a hand made in the U.S.A. Mandolin and I think the price is right, Thanks for your input.
    What was it about the feel of the instrument?

    He does build them himself, Iíve been to his shop several times. The ones I had (this was 10+ years ago, so please take that into consideration) I could never get the action low enough past the 5th or 7th fret. Seems like the neck angle was off. However, there was one for sale in a local music stores years ago that I still wish I had of picked up. It sounded great and played well. I havenít seen Dewayne in years, no particular reason, just havenít crossed paths. I run into his brother a fair bit since heís the fiddler for a band I sit in with from time to time. Glad to hear heís still building. If you end up getting one from Dewayne, Iíd be interested to hear your thoughts on it.
