I was expecting much less from this starter package, and really just wanted to have an instrument to get familiar with. I was pleasantly surprised, as this is a solid little mandolin that tunes well, plays easily, and sounds great.

Nice starter Mandolin. I bought it as a gift. I had to re-cut the nut and adjust the bridge to make it play decently. Not rocket science if you have any kind of luthier skills, but not something to attempt without the proper tools and basic knowledge of how to set up an instrument. Not a standout in the tone department but for the price it sounds wonderful. Note that it is a "Rogue" branded instrument (the pic shows no logo on the headstock, which honestly I would have preferred).

        Comments about Musician's Friend Sunburst Mandolin Starter Kit:

        I am going to buy this product pack. Everything sounds perfect except the brand. As they mention this mandolin is made by Rogue but I haven't see the Rogue brand at the top of the mandolin (like the Black Rogue's mandolin). I wonder if I receive this starter pack, will my Sunburst mandolin have a Rogue brand on it?

            Package came with " bridge set-up" instructions. Bridge is already set. Could be confusing to a Novice. 1st tuning is a bit tricky. But, the instrument is en excellent learner's prototype.

                As a beginner on mandolin, I didn't want to spend a lot of money to be able to try it out and see if I would like it and be able to learn it. This package deal is an excellent value for the beginner! And the quality of the instrument very pleasantly surprised me -- it's really nice and sounds great! Now I'm hooked and want to keep playing and learning the mandolin. Really glad I got it!

                  This is a gift for my 16 yr. old daughter for Christmas. I personally have not played it. The instrument looks to be of good quality. I'm sure it will need tuning once she opens it. Am hoping the books/chords that came with it will be useful to her. She is a beginner so this should be a good instrument for her to start out on.
