        Worst of the Worst

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        I bought the Johnson MF-095 not expecting the quality to be great or for it to sound great because I just needed a practice mando. Even with low expectations, I couldn't believe the poor quality of this instrument. It was literally unplayable because the strings were laying right on the frets. I took it to a professional to get it set up and after three weeks, they gave up on trying to get a sound out of it and gave it back to me. I am amazed that the company can get away with selling an instrument that really isn't an instrument at all.

        Well Pleased

        By Kentucky Colonel

        from Port St Lucie, Florida

        I own 3 of the Johnson F Style Mandolins. I wanted to see how well it preformed in a Jam Session so I use one of the three at least three times a week. It stays in tune and has an excelent BARK and sounds good down to the twelth fret. The finish on the three that I own is average or better. I own a Washburn-expensine-that I have used for five years. Well let me say the Johnson is Good-Good By comparison. You cannot beat the price especialy the sale price. Buy it and try it if you don't like it you have not invested very much. Again about the finish. It looks GREAT!!

        cheap and good

        By Jonny Clifton

        from Cinicnnati

        Great deal. Mine new mandolin came with some blemishes but for the price it didnt matter. The case it self is worth the price. The mando doesnt sound as good as my Kentucky solid top but it is a beauty and has pretty good sound. Definitely recomend it especially if it is on sale.

        avoid this mandolin

        By John Westcott

        from Stevensville, MD

        Even at the price this mandolin is not a deal. Save your money. Very poor construction with lots of over spray paint and runs and white polish residue on the body. Unplayable. Doesn't even make a nice display piece. I'd be afraid to use it as firewood because of what's in the paint. It does come with a case. If you need a cheap mandolin buy the Rogue or spend a little more and get the guitar and mandolin package. I bought this in black and sent it right back. I own a Rogue A model and used it to learn how to play.
