"Excellent mandolin"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This mandolin plays great. Real good tone. The only thing I can see to complain about is the finish is not flawless. There are blemishes under the rear of the fret board, pick guard and inside the scroll. Looks like the stain and or clear coat wasn't applied correctly. Not quite $299.00 quality. I like the mandolin well enough to keep it but would be a nice gesture on zZounds part to give me the blemish price.
