These instruments are great fun and I like them because they seem (for me) a little easier to play with the 17″ scale length. Tuned a 5th lower than the mandolin one can still play what you know on mandolin with the same fingering, albeit in a different key. Very nice fit and finish on these instruments, comes with a gig bag.
This is a Japanese Suzuki version of Italys abundant Neopolitan mandolin. Very good condition, very playable and decent tone.

Very playable out of the box and decent tone. Hard to go wrong for $349.
