Closest StoreBelleville, Ontario
I just got one of these, used but in great condition from Belleville location. Excellent and bright tone, beautiful finish and feel. Plays great. I'm a guitar player over 30 years and just got into mandolin, I can play a few tunes, some Celtic and some bluegrass. And even the simplest songs learning on this sound so good. Not everyone can afford a Gibson, and these are a good solid instrument for a great price. Well worth the money. Came with a hardshell case, make sure to keep humidifier just as you would with a guitar. I rated five stars across the board, I know what I like.
