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.

        Always wanted to learn this instrument, but without investing a ton of cash. This mandolin is perfect for getting a taste of how it feels. Amazed by the tone from such a low priced instrument. Get one- just because it is fun! You'll be glad you did. ..

          Comments about Rogue Mandolin Starter Kit Regular:

          I bought this package because I wanted to see if I would like playing the mandolin. The gig bag is of decent quality, and makes it convenient for storage and protecting the instrument. The Martin strings are a must, as the ones that come on the mandolin are junk. The strap is useful, as it is hard to hold otherwise. All in all, a great bargain as long as you're not expecting a professional grade instrument. It will need to be set up in order to be playable. I adjusted the bridge height and sanded it to fit the contour of the arched top, and relocated the bridge for correct intonation. I have not yet cut the nut slots because they are pretty close right out of the factory. The improvement in tone and playability was amazing. I plan to get a more expensive mandolin in the future, just because I can't put this one down! I've found that I really enjoy playing the mandolin, and I have this Rogue to thank for my introduction. I will keep this one for a travel and camping companion.

          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.
