Subject: RE: Thinking of buying a mandolin
For your styles of music, take a look at a Kentucky 170. It's an oval hole A model, made of all solid wood. Set-up on Kentuckys are ususlaly non-existant, so plan on spending some time "getting it right." Should run $350 to $400 US.

Howver, the best buy is the 500 series Eastman.
