    Unhappy

    I was in the music store the other day, and I saw
    this nice looking f-style mandolin. On the headstock
    it read SPENCER. Do any of you know anything about
    these mandolins?

    Its proablly a generic name for an import,if it tunes up and holds tune is easy to play and you like the sound it will be a good deal you could still offer less.

    Don't know if it is the same Company or not, but I brought a Spencer Acc/Elc guitar for $250.00 and took it on stage with me (I was the keyboard player and lead vocals in a Clasic Rock band and only played Acc on a few songs)I brought the Spencer because I did not want me or my drunken counterparts to knock my Yari out of the stand (which happened to the spencer twice...Good warentee by the way)

    Anyway that was 6 years ago and it has held up good and plays good...it's no Yari (or Loar) but like Markelberry says, if you like it get it
    Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

    Thanks Grant,

    The F-style Spencer actually looked pretty decent,
    and the body was solid wood construction. I started
    out on a Kentucky 150S, and I still play it quite
    often. I think I'll make him an offer. LOL Appreciate
    the help and advise!
