A lot of value for little money

I have the MM-30E/AS. The "E" means electric. This new model has a piezzo pickup under the bridge, which is a great advantage when playing with other musicians who are amplified or in public gatherings where you need more volume. Because of that, the bridge is fixed in the proper position for the right intonation. It needed no adjustments. However, the strings needed to be changed, since they were old, even though the mandolin was new. The tone is very good, due to the solid spruce top and the gold tuners add to the elegance of this instrument. The chop chords sound good and it has a "woody sound", which is what you want. You get a lot for not much money!

Excellent beginner or intermediate mandolin.

On my last trip to Gatlinburg TN I stopped by Ole smoky moonshine distillery and they had a bluegrass band playing, and I became obsessed with the mandolin, as soon as I returned home I started looking for a good, and affordable mandolin to start learning. I've been playing guitar for 15 years so I figured I would try to learn the mandolin (as its more my size anyways, haha) I'm left handed, so finding one of those proved to be too difficult, So I made a trip to sweetwater and originally was looking at a Gretsch New yorker, mainly because it had electronics, but I wasn't happy with the sound it produced, so a salesman made me a great deal on this one so I picked it up. I went home and did some work on it and changed the thing to lefty, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I seriously can't put the thing down, Fantastic sound, and sweetwater did a great set up on the thing. out of the box this thing played like a dream.

Taken Back/Going Forward

I'm truly taken back in time with the sunburst look and the gold hard ware; that's a bonus. But what really matters is, it's great sound and playability. That's going forward, so now I'm pleased.
