    Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

    Old guitar player and I was looking for something new, I picked this up online. After it arrived I took it out of the box, did a quick tuning job, went to you tube and in 20 minutes I was playing Dance Tonight by McCartney and Copperhead Road by Steve Earl. Easy chords, nice sound, plenty loud by itself for practice and comes thru the P A great as well. I've since been learning different techniques and styles very quickly, it was a little difficult getting used to the tiny frets and close proximity of the strings but certainly easy to adjust to with time and practice. Suddenly learning all kinds of songs that this sound fits into and its a whole lot of fun!

      I bought this to learn to play the mandolin. Would be great if it came with an extra set of strings, as my a strings were way over stretched.

              I bought this mandolin for my 10 year old grandson's birthday present. He loves it and plays as much as possible. The look on his face was worth the price! I hope he gets years of enjoyment from this instrument.

              Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

              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.

              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.

                Was very leary as to the sound and quality of such a not costly instrument.Well please it's not a Gibson or Eastman but my function of cross tuning and play it suits me very well very loud.
