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.

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.

    Comments about Rogue Mandolin Starter Kit Regular:

    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.

          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. ..

            I bought this for my son who plays guitar and wants to start exploring mandolin. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. It plays well and has no fret buzz or other problems found in lesser expensive instruments. It doesn't sound like a Martin, but for the price I don't expect it to.

            This is my first mandolin, and I was extremely please with how well it plays and how nice the action is on it. I have big hands, so I worried I would have trouble chording, but that really doesn't seem to be an issue. Also the bundle it came in has an extra set of strings and a soft gig bag, which I am also very please about.

                I've had a great experience with this mandolin. Once it was set up properly, it plays beautifully and sounds good. I have recorded with this and got excellent results. Stays in tune and a great tone.

                This package I think is the way to go. All things I would have bought anyway. Strings and strap are top quality. Gig bag is really well padded. I thought the other package was silly but this one is perfect.

                So I would get this again, and I would get it in this same package!
