bankley Mandolin suggestion beginner (20) RE: Mandolin suggestion beginner 06 Oct 09

I picked one up last year at Steve's Music in Toronto for $150 CDN. It's a Stagg, made in China. I didn't know which end was up when I started. It took some getting used to the small neck and close frets.. but I kept at it and ended up recording a few support parts on Murdoch's CD... as well as my new projects... it's a nice colour in the mix.. and can be used to add groove to a tune... I won't ever be ready for a 1920's Lloyd Lear Gibson, even if I had the $200,000 to spare... just bought a really good Chinese Stratocaster for my daughter for $70 new... part of a bankruptcy sale... hell, the bridge and tuners are worth more than that.... good luck Dan, happy pickin'
