Very impressive for the price. Even the finish was better than expected. Most important it didn't play like a toy, the action was great and easy to play. The tail piece didn't stay on right but they are taking care of this for me. I love the instrument !

I gave it a two rating because it was playable...barely.
I bought this Mandolin package because I thought it was the exact model I had played that belonged to a friend of mine. I later found out his was a Harmony...not a Rogue.
The long and short of it...It would not stay in tune and the cheap wood bridge broke the second day.
This Mandolin would be great for hanging on a wall or for use as firewood, but as a musical instrument, it fails.
If you can't afford a lot of money for a mandolin, I would go with an Epiphone.

    Very nice mandolin for the money

    Comments about Rogue Mandolin Starter Kit Regular:

    I'm a guitar player who's considered taking up mandolin off and on for years. I decided to try this one because I didn't want to invest a lot of money into one. I decided mandolin is not for me, so I'm returning it, mainly because it's too hard to teach an old dog new tricks, not that there's anything wrong with it at all. I don't know much about mandolins, but I would say this one is very good quality for the money, just comparing what I know about guitars. I would definitely recommend it for a beginner.

        Novice on the mandolin, a little bit more than a novice on guitars. I thought that the difference is sound would be helpful for an all around appreciation of stringed instruments . . . next is either a banjo or violin.

        Comments about Rogue Mandolin Starter Kit Regular:

        I read music, but don't yet play strings. I have had NO problem with tuning. The instrument had to be tuned when I received it. I am playing the original strings right now and I KNOW that strings stretch and go out of tune ESPECIALLY when they are new. I start my day by tuning my mandolin. After about a week of stretching and settling in, the tuning is staying much closer overnight. I will have someone help me put on the good Martin strings that came with the set. Now if I can get the hang of a stringed instrument!

        Comments about Rogue Mandolin Starter Kit Regular:

        A little buzz in the G strings that will have to be dealt with, but the tone is good and it is a good instrument for a beginner. The gig bag is nice. Action is probably a little high, but not so much that a novice (like me) should care. Price is right for what you get.

          I used this is in a performance this weekend. It was great; real bright tone and held its tuning. I did almost no setup. So, for the price, this is a 5 star product.

          For a first mando to get your feet wet and even jam and play with a group, this is just fine.
