      Comments about Dean Bluegrass F Mandolin:

      I was glad that it was not purple as it looks on the picture. The tone is excellent and the tuner knobs stay in place. I rarely have to tune it back up.

      Dean Bluegrass f5 mandolin

      By 

      from Western North Dakota

      Comments about Dean Bluegrass F Mandolin:

      The Dean is good in all respects, except the top is veneer, not solid. Consequently, it has a tone a little too bright. It's loud, though. The fingerboard is very good, and fit and finish are fine. Comes with a great case. It stays in tune well. I find it works best with heavy strings- I'm using the Bill Monroe Gibsons. If you can, though, find a mandolin with a solid wood top.

      Don't buy one

      Comments about Dean Bluegrass F Mandolin:

      I purchased one and the top is collasping under the tension of the strings across the bridge so that between the 'F' holes the top is concave.

      Tuners are cheesy at best. Replaced them within weeks of buying instrument.

      decent mando for the price

      Comments about Dean Bluegrass F Mandolin:

      Replaced tuners and tailpiece (Allen), had professional set up, and it it really starting to open up after 8 months. Tone is not like a 5k Gibson, but is decent.I use it for travel, attending festivals/campfire picking.

      Shop wisely

      Comments about Dean Bluegrass F Mandolin:

      I bought an A model that sounds and plays better than this one. The A Style I bought came with a gig bag and two books. I have owned this Dean Bluegrass F-style for about four months and it's not a bad player, it sounds alright - but when I bought the A-Style, as mentioned before, for friends to play when they visited I was very surprised at how it played and sounded better.

      Good sweet tone, easy playing, but I have seen the top cave-in on this mandolin.
