Thread Name: Thinking of buying a mandolin
Subject: RE: Thinking of buying a mandolin
If you are really keen to keep the money small, see if you can find a used Tacoma. For a really fine mandolin at a comparatively low price, check out Eastman, and buy one before the Chinese currency is allowed to float. These are fine instruments at about 1/4 to 1/3 the price of Weber/Collings/Gibsons. They make my luthier friends anxious.
