I hate to say this but...pass
I was surprised although I read some of the other reviews. it's RARE that I leave such a low mark. I've heard good things about the electronics and a few people complain a little about the build but I tried it anyway thinking it would be ok and sound great. But the kicker, the build was so astronomically low quality I was completely beside myself, my low end Fender A Style electric made it look like it was someones 2nd attempt at building a mandolin and the A style look like a 2K mandolin. Honestly, I never got around to even listening to it, because I couldn't get past the build; as an aside, it didn't play that well either. Sweetwater returned it promptly without question except why. I can't recommend it. I did get another mandolin from them which I should receive soon. That's my honest opinion.
