This is not a high quality stuck up mandolin, and I am not a high quality stuck up player so it works for me. It tunes very well and holds it decently. The electronics work fine and the frets were made fine with a bit of file work. It plays good enough for me to join in at the camp fire sing along or the seniors jam. Plus the heritage that it represents, a history of great music behind this little guy.
