Mandolin Sunburst

Which mandolin to get?

So I want to buy a mandolin, but I don't want to/can't spend much.

I found a Rogue on Amazon, and when I read reviews they said that it's not a very good mandolin but alright for learning. Then I found one on ebay, it's not name brand.

The Rogue has F holes which I'm used to (I play violin), and the other one doesn't have F holes, just the sound hole. Is there a difference? Does one sound better?

Ok, Rogue is not a very good brand. You will have to get a lot of adjustment done to it, and have some work put into it. They are decent, I suppose.

Try to find a Gibson brand or similar.

Now, the difference between F holes and just a normal soundhole is that an F hole has a "punchier" sound, preferably for blue grass.

However, there are F-style Mandolins, and A style. A style mandolins are shaped like tear drops, and have oval holes or F-holes, and F-style, usually baring F-holes, have a very different look to them. They often have a strange little "curl" in the body up in the corner.

If you wish to play Bluegrass, F-style is the way to go.
For folk, you want an A-style.
Though both can alternate.
Here's some of both. Some cheap, some expensive, but a good list, nonetheless

Enjoy, and happy playing.
