I am a professional musician with over 30 years experience in gigging and playing in bands. I play the guitar but have just started on the mandolin. I bought this product because it has a built in pick up and is ready to rock. It arrived in mint condition, well packaged and safe. The case is excellent.... keys for locking and 3 sturdy locking mechanisms. It is strong and well padded. The mandolin exceeds my expectations. The tuning mechanisms are flawless... strings stay in tune for a long time. The strings are great and I was prepared to replace them with higher quality strings but actually they're sweet in tone and sustain. The frets are perfect and the action is adjustable anyways (I like it lowered as much as possible!). The bridge is sturdy and reliable. The pick up is great... it has a tone and volume control that provide a wide range of tonal effect (I run this mandolin into a Marshall 1/2 stack JVM210h with 11 effects on the pedal board!). The mandolin is finished in high quality gloss and looks great. I added my own strap locking pins as I play standing up on stage. (It did not come with strap pins. So what's it like to play? It has a crisp clear tone and lots of sustain. I play songs like Wagon Wheel (the mando obviously lends itself to violin parts and a country feel) and folksy rock stuff like Led Zep and Maggie May. I say this because both styles of playing (picking individual strings for melody lines AND strumming chord shapes) are clear and strong. Yes there's much dearer and better quality mandos out there but hey, I would buy this mando again if I had to, and I recommend it to people looking for a cool new way to make music. Awesome price without sacrificing quality.

Despite ordering it during Covid lockdown, it came quicker than I expected it. Decent Prize and Decent Quality. Only complaint would probably be it doesn't come with a strap (but had some spare materials lying around to make a strap).

Awesome mandolin

Once again, Artist Guitars were very prompt with delivery. I don't live in the metro area but my Mandolin arrived in under 48 hours. The instrument itself is better than the picture shows and is fantastic value for money. Quality and sound is very good.
