Great little Mando

By Charley

from midwest

Comments about Washburn M3SW F-Style Mandolin w/case:

Washburn M3SW F style Manolin. Great tone and volume. Looks and feels good. As with any mando from the factory, it will need some set-up. I did the neck and bridge myself. Nut was OK. If this is beyond your abilities, take it to a luthier before trying to seriously play it. Also changed strings immediately. My preference is Cleartone strings. I've had it a nearly 3 years & will need some fret work soon just from normal use. Plan to swap the tuners for a set of good Grovers. Better tuners would have boosted the rating. A joy to play.
Mine has a solid Allen tailpiece which is an upgrade for better tone.
Tuners are usable but cheap and rough.
Overall a true and solid instrument. Cheap tuners.
Great for the price.

Bought mine new

By Arc Burn

from West Coast

Comments about Washburn M3SW F-Style Mandolin w/case:

Everything about the mando is great except for the tailpiece cover. Tha brass cover is continually falling off. I have contacted Washburn and they said I need to bend it a little more. Still doesn't stay on. Washburn needs to come out with a free fix for these poorly designed tailpiece covers.

It was Outstanding right out of the box. It?s a Great little player lots of fun. No defects. And I looked hard to find one as I'm sure we all do. It is a real nice case. Overall a superb value! I think Washburn builds a "quality" instrument.
