Ibanez M510E A-Style Mandolin

Ibanez mandolins are built with quality components and offer pro features & construction, without the high-end price tag. The Ibanez M510E mandolin is an acoustic-electric instrument with a single coil magnetic pickup with Volume & Tone controls, a spruce top, a mahogany body and chrome tuners. The mahogany body provides rich warm lows and sweet sustain. It was great to hear that after a nearly twenty year hiatus, Ibanez mandolins have returned to the line-up. These are affordable instruments that are very comfortable and easy to play.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (44 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent instrument for the price."
Sound: The sound with the original factory strings wasn't too bad, but once they were replaced with some Elixirs, the clarity was much improved. Ease of Use: As an acoustic-electric Mandolin, there has to be compromises. It took a bit of experimentation with the volume/tone controls to get it to sound okay. Once set, it is pretty decent (considering the price) Quality: Fit and finish are excellent, the only complaint I have (and this is common for a stringed instrument in this price range) is the poor quality tuners. Quite a bit of play in the peg/bushing area which makes tuning a challenge. I am in the process of replacing them. Value: There aren't alot of acoustic-electric mandolins in this price range to compare the Ibanez too. I did alot of "Googling" for reviews prior to purchase and this fared better than most. Manufacturer Support: N/A Overall: As a fairly new Mandolin player, I expect this to last at least a couple years before I look for an upgrade, and only then if there is a compelling reason to do so.
Style of Music: Comtemporary Christian, Bluegrass, Celtic

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "First Mandolin In 30 Years...She's A Keeper!!!"
Sound: Excellent! Ease of Use: Easy as can be if you know how to play it. Quality: Superb. Value: Worth every penny! Manufacturer Support: Didn't need it. The Wow Factor: The wow factor? WOW!!! Overall: I got my first Mandolin for Christmas at age 18. I learned to play on it and then, I stepped on it and broke it! It took me nearly 30 years to buy a new Mandolin and I did a lot of research before making a purchase. I knew it didn't make sense to buy a thousand dollar Mandolin but, I also didn't want a $39.99 beginner! This Mandolin fit nicely into my pricing comfort zone and, my research revealed results satisfactory enough for me to buy the Ibanez M510E.Thanks in no small part to zZounds 4-Easy Pay plan, I ordered Th Mandolin and it arrived safe and sound however, I live in Wisconsin and it is winter time here. I am always nervous about shipping instruments in the winter but, if you are patient enough to wait several hours to a day before opening the shipping box, there should be no weather damage! There was no damage and in fact, all I needed to do was make a very minor bridge adjustment and she was ready to go!Step 1: I opened the box and the first thought was, "She sure is a "looker"! Step 2: I tuned her up and it was time to see if I remembered anything I had learned as a teen about playing the mandolin. I was rusty but, like the old cliche' says, "It's just like riding a bike"! She looked good, she felt good and, she played pretty darn good too!Step 3: Now it was time to change the strings as I always do when I get a new instrument. Now she sounded much better! Not that is was bad right out of the box but, the new strings did bright up the sound quite a bit!Nice, bright, ringing sound and what I consider to be an instrument of quality beyond it's pricing! The neck was straight, no "splinters" in the F-holes heck, no physical flaws at all!If you buy the M510E or, any instrument for that matter, they may need minor adjustments if they are being shipped to you. If you are too nervous to do any adjustment yourself, take it to a pro, it's not expensive! And remember, the weather can be a huge factor in the condition of an instrument upon it's arrival. Don't be too hasty in opening your new treasure, give it a chance to acclimate to the conditions in your home, studio, wherever you are opening the shipping box.
Style of Music: Is "Soup to Nuts" a musical style? Traditional Country to Metal...I don't like to be pigeonholed into one category.
