Really Nice To My Ear

I purchased two mandolins. One was an Epiphone M50 and this Ibanez for my girlfriend. The Epiphone is electrified and the Ibanez is not. Played as acoustic, the Ibanez has a fuller sound. I might like the neck shape of the Ibanez better also. It makes me wonder if I had gotten the Ibanez, and added electronics, would I have been just as happy or maybe happier.

A great mandolin

I have the sunburst version of this mandolin, and I am very happy with it, and have considered buying the dark violin model. With a solid spruce top, this mandolin has great projection and beautiful tone. I use it to record music for worship on Sundays, and people love the tone. The lock inlays and the finish are perfect and the tonal qualities are equal to high end Gibson models. Highly recommended!
