    In my search for a playable bowl back mandolin (being a novice!) Iíve come across this mandolin. The maker is Alfredo Privitera (Catania) Sicily. The issue that Iíve been kindly advised of from you all is playability on old bowl backs. This appears to be a Ďnewí or recently manufactured model but I canít find any info on the maker. Anybody have any experience? Theyíre asking 400 for it (with hard case) and Iím tempted. Itís not near to me so I canít test it unfortunately, however it is well within budget.

    Thanks!

    Ciao, Franco

    Ecco un link ad una precedente conversazione sui mandolini di Signore Privitera.
