          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.

              Comments about Ibanez M510 A-Style Mandolin:

              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.

              haven't used the mandolin yet, so can't comment on the quality...that said, it is an Ibanez so it should be decent for the price range...the color was wrong when I received it...the customer service in returning it for an exchange was very competent and friendly
