Link bookmarked, thank ya much.

[Edit] Thanks jim i may try some lessons there's supposed to be a phenomenal fiddler at the local music shop who gives lessons, but this is prolly pretty far in the future. Truck repairs and a microphone come first. Not to mention i still only have 2 guitars...

My sister plays a lot of mandolin. She usually suggests the Rogue A Style. It's usually priced about 80 dollars. I don't know about how the mandolin is, but I have played a Rogue Resonator for sometime that is a decent guitar.

I had a Rogue mandolin and sold it out of disinterest, not quality. The very first thing I did was change the strings which made a huge difference in tuning and tone. It just would not tune with the delivered strings.

Changing strings on one is a scary affair. Most guitar players are adverse to tuning higher and higher to get to pitch, but those little strings hold and get there. They also hurt, even for a long time guitar player with plenty callus.

They are tuned in fifths so you can make several chords with two strings. I never did master the style of mandolin that allows you to play melody and leads.. I never progressed that far. I sold mine for what I paid for it.

A KM 150 is a decent mandolin for you to check out. Maybe get one used.

I'm currently plunking on a mandolin that my fiddle player made. Great little mando, but I'd like to buy one with electronics.
