    Default It's a habit, I can't help myself

    It's a habit, I can't help myself. This time of the year I watch for the deals on musical instruments. This one just caught my eye. Four cents and it's on sale?

    You kind of have to know how Amazon works. There is an entire marketplace of private sellers and connected websites that also come up. That's where the price on the bottom comes in.

    Just think of how much you'd save if you buy 1,000 of them!

    There must be some kind of inflationary movement in the mandolin world in last couple years. Not too many "deals" to be had.
    Although the variety and quality seems plentiful.
