Where Purchased: Music Submarine

Year Purchased: 2015
Price Paid: 325. ($US) (bought USED)


Unplugged the Mqandolin has a bright sound.
Plugged into an amp this thing screams. It will be heard in a crowd.
The pick up is a major plus it will let you be heard.

Sound Rating: 10


The mandolin came set very well.

Setup Rating: 10


The blonde natural finish makes it stand out but not flashy. No glossy finish so its not one to sit around and afraid to get scratched up.

Appearance Rating: 8


The tuners are sticky and feel a little cheap. Tailpiece is whats standard today.

Reliability Rating: 5

Customer Service

Customer Service: 7


The fit and finish is not top quality. Secaond rate at best but sounds great and plays easy.

Components Rating: 4

Overall Comments

I didn't buy it for a top quality instrument, I wanted something to travel with that had good sound.Fit and finish is not as nice as a high dollar mando but I've seen ones for more money with not as good a sound from them.

Overall Rating: 7
