GUEST,Bardan dodgy mandolin (32) RE: dodgy mandolin 08 Mar 07

It doesn't have any brand name label on it. (Before you go running off to conclusions about hand-crafted marvels, its a cheap job. I'm more of a fiddler really.) It's a fairly standard irish mandolin. Spruce top. Not sure what the back and sides are. Nice sustain, smells of freshly cut wood. Oh, the neck is either completely slathered with resiny stuff or its made out of tennis racket. Nice sound for the price range though, be a pity to lose it. A had a quick fiddle with the bridge this morning, and it was better but not perfect. I think it'll be ok so long as a take the time out to tinker and get me an electronic tuner to get it absolutely right. It's an endless task just keeping the strings in tune with each other anyway. I should just get one of those Russian jobbies with no courses. domras?
