Mike - I think you'll have better luck - and get a better instrument - if you look at an "A" or flat style mandolin. I've tried several "F" styles in the price range you mention and I haven't been impressed with any of them. But that's just my opinion. If I were you I would consider looking at the Mid-Missouri brand. They can be had for well under $500.00 and are easy to play with a good tone. I own one and I've been very happy with it. It's a very simple design and won't win any beauty contests however. Good Luck - Wesley
