    Re: Pickup for New Loar M-520

    At that price, you did good; those 520s are fine Mandolins.
    All you need now is a Crossrock fiberglass case to take er out and you'll be set.

    My 2020 is a cannon; fit, finish, and tone do it for me.

    Re: Is my new mando trash?

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    I prefer F style with Tone-gard and the more bling the better, I find the F just as comfortable to hold as my A style.
