    Comments about Fender Robert Schmidt Mandolin:

    I ordered one of these, and it arrived in good condition, that is, it was in one piece. On the other hand, the factory setup was SO poor that I couldn't get it to be even passable, and I'm pretty good at tweaks. Eventually, I had my guitar tech set it up, and for a small fee, what a difference! If you pay the current price for this, figure on spending a bit more to have the nut redone, etc.

    The big surprise: Plugged in, it sounds STELLAR! It is a great stage mando. Just don't expect it to be something you'd enjoy playing on the porch with your pals while enjoying some brats and beer. Acoustically, it is dead as a doornail. But, that pickup just sings when sent through a good preamp and EQ'd properly.
