Overall: I only bought this because of the 8-payment option. Its definitely not worth the price. it looks like crap up close, it comes poorly set up, its just not that great. the pick up system is pretty cool but noisy and also not THAT great. Just dont bother buying this.

Overall: I returned this Mandolin. First, the workmanship was shoddy, especially around where the neck and fretboard connected to the body, and at the scroll. It looked as though the luthier just gave-up before it was finished. Rough cuts that should have been smoothed, splotchy stain, poor binding job around the neck. And on the head, a blunder with the drum sander that left a dark colored dent. The top had splinters missing around the edges, very small, but still, 3rd rate craftsmanship all around. Very difficult to play, it was almost impossible to fret at the first , and as I use 12s on my acoustic guitars, I don't think finger strength was the problem! Had I picked this instrument up in a store, I would never have even considered paying $499.00 for it. Very disappointing. But again, ZZ gets 6 Stars, for customer service on the return.

Overall: I have no idea what the other folks on here are talking about.... You get get what you pay for and there are good and bad foreign products. But this is worth 5 bills +. The craftsmanship isn't a 1950 Gibson but it has a nice tone and the pickup is true to the tone of the man-do.Only a couple of small things you need to address .......1.Who ever "sets up" the Mando needs to be taught how ( 4 Hrs to set it up right intonation was way off)2. The neck at the top is way to thin for my fat fingers...Other than that happy with my purchaseZzound always comes through for meThanks Guys and Gals

Overall: I got one 2012 And it does look homemade but it's nice. It did play a little hard but I did a little set up and it plays very nice now you do have to tune it some times with the weather change but like I said it does play sweet.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
