A decent mandolin

02.11.2015
Obviously for the money this mandolin won't take your breath away but it's a decent instrument. The finish looks good at first glance but when taking a closer look it has it's rough spots here and there. The "F" holes cut outs are not as smooth as you might expect. The pick guard does not have smooth rounded edging. Like the HB 35 I purchased, the pick guard looks as if it were shaped / trimmed by hand. The collars on the tuning pegs (machine heads) were not flush against the head stock on 6 of the 8 tuners (they were sticking up pretty high). So I had to loosen the strings and push them down flush. Not a big deal but it tells you a little about the attention to details on this particular instrument. When connected to the amp it worked fine. Not a lot of noise and no feedback (a good thing). Overall, not too bad. A decent mandolin to carry around with you without having to worry about your more expensive one.

Very good for the price

AndrewK, 22.01.2014
The finish may be a little rough around the edges but for the price this is a great instrument. I've used it live with no problems at all. The stock strings weren't very good but I restrung it with D'Addarios and it made a massive difference. I'm no mandolin expert and this is my first, but I'm impressed with the sound and playability of such a cheap instrument.

Short version: buy one, but buy some new strings as well.
