Anyone play the Mandolin here? I tried them out at Sam Ash and they are really cool! Any players?
I like the sound and looks from it, especially the Gibson Firebird. But the neck is to small, I just could not find a way to enjoy playing on it.
I actually just sold one last week. I bought it 4 months ago and literally played it the day I bought it and that was the only time I ever picked it up. I just could not get into it for whatever reason but I definitely think what cowgod said is right on target, the neck is really tough to work with. I actually think its harder than going from a bass guitar to a Soprano Uke! They do have a beautiful sound if played right but the mando couldnt hold my attention at all unfortunately
