I wanted to learn mandolin and at this price point I was excited to jump in without breaking the bank, I was a little weary about it being too cheap but i got it anyways. I had it set up by a luither who put the bridge in the correct place and put some of the D'addario j75 strings on it. The Mando sounds really nice, the strings are nice and mellow but still have a bit of bite without being too shrill. It is really light, it is holding its tuning well and looks amazing. Its a no brainer if your intrested in this Mando just to get it, it has a cheap price tag and Im really impressed by Ibanez's quality entry level instruments.

I've owned several cheaper priced mandolins, and this one has been pretty good compared to others. However, there are some issues. The photo on MSF's website shows the instrument with a satin finish, more like an old violin. It's not shiny in the photo. When I got the mandolin, I was surprised to see it with a very shiny lacquer finish. Also, they sprayed the stain and the finish over a taped neck. Where the neck sticks out over the body, there is no stain or finish on that part of the body at all, it's bare wood. I could easily send it back, but for what I intend using the mandolin for, it's not that big of deal to me.

Out of the box, you have to do some minor set up. I instantly replaced the strings. I use the same set of D'Addario EXP74CM Coated Phosphor Bronze Custom Medium Mandolin Strings, played by Chris Thile. Some adjustments, new strings, and it sounds pretty good.

All in all, it's a decent little A-style mando.

Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

Out of the box this mando is nice for the money. I would suggest removing all the strings except one G and one A string. Take some painters tape and use as a marker where the bridge rests as delivered. Loosen the two strings (G and A)that are still on the mando and remove the bridge. Take off the plastic under the bridge and discard. Put the bridge back on at the position where you marked with the tape. Adjust the bridge down all the way. Tune up the G and A string. Pick the G string at the 12th fret and see if it buzzes. If so then loosen and adjust the wheel up. (I actually filed my fret and checked the height with a steel ruler and gage but you will need to know what you are doing for this). Do the same with the A string. Now pick the G and A. If they are in tune at open and at the 12th you are good. If not then move or tap the bridge up or down to get it in tune. My bridge position was lower on the G than the A and sits at an angle of about 3 degrees. Now put tape all around the bridge so it won't move and put the best strings you can afford on the mando. Tune up and you will find this model plays and holds tune very well. I would suggest using fret fast for sure. I wanted something cheap to cart around and use as a practice piece. I found it to be more than that and I am very pleased. I would try a light, medium, flat wound and coated strings if you are starting out to see which works for you since no one person picks the same as far as tension or pressure goes and the tone and feel will be a personal thing. Strings are a cheap way to develop your individual character for playing.

      Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

      Purchased this for our son's 14th birthday present. He currently plays the violin, ukelele, and swanks out lively tunes on his harmonica. When he opened the box the day of his birthday we were all surprised at how beautiful this mandolin was. It was prompty tuned and off his fingers went to play up and down the strings to make the most incredible sounds. The tone was rich and strong. We bought the dark "violin" finish, as it was the only color they had in stock at the time we place our order for one. Our son had a liking for the "sunburst" finish so we were hoping it wouldn't be too dark. Surprisingly, it wasn't overly dark at all. The natural wood grain finish has a rich, warm, dark brown appearance that deepens into black just a little around the edges-- not too much black. It is gorgeous, quite actually. He's had a lot of fun playing it around the house getting used to the eight strings. He REALLY likes this instrument! We're all SOOO pleased with this instrument, and we heartily recommend it to someone who wants more than just a beginner level quality one, as this stays in tune nicely and doesn't appear to be something that would need to be replaced or upgraded any time soon.

      Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

      I have been completly blown away by this mandolin. I ordered this crossing my fingers, hoping I wouldn't get a piece of krud, and as it turns out this has been a joy to play. A little over two months and the constant and consitent elegant sounds that this instrument can produce still shocks me. Bluegrass favorits such as cripple creek and red haired boy are highly complimented by this insrtruments capabilities. Overall, if you want a low price mandolin that can play with the best of them, this is a good way to go.
      Comes equiped with high quality hardware. Just make sure that as soon as you get it that you replace the strings, mine were nearly black with age. The only thing I dislike was the pick guard, it is a piece of crap. The fret dots both on the front and side of the board are wonderful. The dark violin finish on mine is dark and elegant and has no visible imperfections except for inside the F-holes.
      The quality is great. The stock strings could be better and the pickguard again was ridiculous, otherwise I have no qualms about this instrument.
      For the price you cannot do much better, I have spent great amoutns of time playing 400-1000 dollar mandolins and the sound on this little Ibanez can stand up to any of them.

      Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

      I am a long time guitarist who bought this mandolin as a Christmas present for my 8 year old daughter. When the instrument came, the finish was nice, and the neck, fretboard and frets were all in good playing condition. The violin finish was darker than the pictures showed--very dark brown, almost black--but is still nice looking.

      The action needed to be lowered at the bridge and the intonation needed to be set, but this was not difficult to do. The only drawback is that the nut was not filed properly, so most of the strings actually were sitting on top of the grooves, making the action very high toward the nut and very difficult to play (like driving a bus). This is the kind of thing that you come to expect when looking for instruments in this price range. Fortunately, we have the tools to file the nut and after doing so, the mandolin now plays very nicely and produces good tones.

      Overall, it is a great value for the money. If you can't do the setup yourself, I would highly recommend paying the 50 bones, or thereabouts, for a professional setup. After a nice setup, it plays and sounds much better than any of the mandolins in its price range and, in my opinion, better than many that I have seen and played in the 500-600 greenback range.

      A very excellent beginner mandolin.

      Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

      I am not a great musician. I am better at getting instruments to sound better than they come. So the first thing I do is get rid of the cheap bridge unless it happens to be well constructed and replace the strings, most of the time the overseas instruments suffer from the ocean transportation rust on the strings. Even though they use the moisture packs to ward this off. Overall the mandolin is pretty well built, has a truss rod, the fretboard looks straight (although in need of some lemon oil) and the frets are very level. It sounds great but I would like to make a bone nut for it to replace the plastic one it came with to get an even better tone. But for the price and quality, you can't go wrong in purchasing this little mandolin.

      Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

      I been playing guitar mostly electric with one acoustic for many years and written my own music. My guitars I own are ESP Deluxe 1000, Schecter Diamond series, Fender American Strat, Fender Mexican Strat and Humbuckler HTTS, one Highway 101 Telecaster,1 Ibanez shredder Rg series The acoustic I own is a Takamine. The Ibanbez M510A for $149.00 is truly incredible. When I opened the box for a $149.00 mandolin I expected garbage with plastic tuners, The beauty of this little instrument knocked me on the ground. Metal tuners, astonishing color. The frets are marked with bar marks so you know where you are. The play ability is simple incredible with the sound coming out of this mystifying. Easy to tune, Easy to string. Even if your never going to play it you got this baby showcased in your home your gonna get comments. This thing looks like a Stradivarius or something. The M510 -A mandolin to all the pro mandoliners out there check this one out. The reason the quality only got a 4.5 is that it's delicate and there is a plastic foam insert between the bridge and the body. Is that standard? Ibanez Great job. Musicians Friend great price. This is a winner!

        I played guitar years ago and after retiring decided to buy a mandolin to play around with. This is not a Gibson by any means but it is a solid instrument for someone who wants to test the mandolin waters. Sound is not bad and it seems to stay in tune. I am very happy with this mandolin for the price I paid.

        My loving family gave me one of these for Christmas. One of the best presents I've ever received. I'm not into the whole bluegrass thingy but I've been having fun learning new fiddle tunes. We are doing a some bluegrass at church this summer. Had to get a p/u for it (the Lr Baggs one works great) for putting though the board at church.The coolest thing is now when I pick up my Martin or Les Paul my fingers just fly. Don't know if it's playing a new instrument or just being jacked about playing again - like when I first picked up a guiter.

        I love this lil mandolin. Sounds great, plays clean, looks expensive (violin finish). It was almost ready straight out of the box. It had a small piece of packing under the bridge, that prevented scratching, that needed to be removed. A lowering of the bridge to set the string height (which was extremely easy with the adjustable bridge. positioned the bridge and tuned her up. GREAT mandolin for the money...Ill be playing it for years.

            Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

            I am new to the mandolin game. I have moved away from my hard rock roots and have moved in to a more rootsy, Americana direction. My instrument choices lately reflect this.

            I do have a taste for nicer stuff (having played guitar for 30 years, I have a coupla nice instruments). However, new to an instrument, I am not apt to just go full on in to the top of the line. Even though I did this with guitar, I am buying a few new instruments lately to round out my rootsy collection.

            That said, I did want a mandolin since that's very much within the sounds in my brain.

            Enough of the story, I needed a good and reasonably priced mandolin. I played a number of them. I played a few Kentucky's, a Fender and even a Rogue. All played well enough. I liked the Ibanez best. Just had that 'sweet spot' sound I wanted to hear.

            I purchased the Violin Burst. Very nice looking. Very sharp. Looks so nice that my wife decided that instead of hanging it in the music room, she wanted it in the living room as a decoration...when I'm not using it........

            As a guitar player, fretting a mandolin is not a challenge so I am hard put to explain how well it plays. It is very comfortable to play. I don't feel like I am being challenged by the action and can get decent note articulation. I guess the best way to say it is that I don't feel like the instrument is resisting me and I am not thinking about the instrument but about what I am playing (read: learning...).

            I'd mentioned the sound and this does give me the mandolin sound I desired. Perhaps someday I will throw down on an expensive Gibson but until then, I will probably be very happy with this.

            I enjoy playing it.

            I chose this mandolin because I liked the description of its construction and because I had great experience with an Ibanez bass. The sound is richer than the more expensive Kentucky KM140 I tried, and the quality seems to be better as well. now if i could just get the hang of fretting two courses simultaneously with one finger...

              Guitarist looking to play mandolin without breaking the bank on an instrument I might not enjoy, but needing an instrument that wouldn't discourage playing. This is it! After positioning bridge, tuning, and playing awhile, this instrument has great string action and has not gone greatly out of tune in a couple of months.
              Only thing that could be improved would be solid top, but I'd have been at double the price and didn't want to go there. Not sure if beginner solid tops even sound "double the price."

              Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

              I got the Vintage Sunburst as a gift from my boyfriend. (I did pick it out myself). I LOVE the finish on it, it looks great! It sounds great! I am very pleased with it. I did have a friend set it up for me, new strings helped, I have several jam sessions I attend on a regular basis, and this mandolin will most likely be the one I take most often. I also have an f-style, and an electric Ovation. The Ibanez is the easiest to play of all three! Like I said before, I LOVE this mandolin. Great value for the money!

                Bought this for my wife for our anniversary. She has expressed interest in playing a mandolin like her Paternal grandmother used to. The finish on the mandolin is the open pore vintage finish,it is beautiful. Matte overall, not too shiny, nice muted burst tones. I just got around to tuning it up yesterday, seems to stay in tune well, only ran it up the fretboard a few times. She'll have alot of fun with this one, and the price point was great for a beginner. The packaging was top notch. shipped in its box, in a box, in a bigger box with lots of packing around the inner boxes.

                bought this as a Christmas present to myself. I'm pretty much strictly a guitar player but I enjoy writing songs and had a couple in mind that I would like to put mandolin on. thought this would be a good budget minded one to start on. Ibanez has never let me down as far as guitars go. First of all, I absolutely love the sound of this instrument. It will have to be set up correctly, do your research on line on mandolin set up, it's something you can easily do. Once set up correctly this is a very clean, clear sounding instrument. The reason I gave a 4 for quality is that I have the action as low as it can be set without modifying something and it still seems a little high. this instrument has made me a believer that if I haven't invested so much time and money into guitars, I think I wouldn't have minded at all having the mandolin as my instrument of choice.

                I ordered this for my boyfriend as a Birthday/Anniversary/Valentine's Day gift, he originally wanted something completely different, but it wasn't available. I found this and got it because all the reviews were positive that I found, and it's a nice looking mandolin!He absolutely loves it! He hardly ever sets it down, and it sounds wonderful! Shipping was extremely fast, and ordering was simple. Thanks for helping me make this present very special!

                The bridge does not sit tight against top. Without proper adjustment, I'd be worried that it will crack the top over time. Sounds great as-is but tone is also improved by adjusting the bridge. Minor cosmetic flaws due to the cost, but nothing that affect the play-ability.

                    This is a great mandolin. Tone is crisp and clear and has a nice ring to it.
