    Re: My new Aria M-300

    This was the first (and probably only) time I've ever bought an instrument without playing it first. I liked the look, and I took a chance. In hindsight, I should have taken their lack of a reply...

    Re: My new Aria M-300

    Really? I was under the impression that the M-300 was pretty good for the money. In that case, yeah, better I just return it. Especially if it turns out it really is a random body with an unused...

    Re: My new Aria M-300

    Re: My new Aria M-300

    Re: My new Aria M-300

    I tested it with a straightedge, and it does indeed turn at about the 17th fret, losing about 1mm in height. Is this a serious problem or a fairly minor one? If it's likely to affect the sound, is it...

    Re: My new Aria M-300

    Thank you for the reply. The setup on this one has a wood block that seems attached to the neck, as it floats slightly above the top, and it looks like there is dry residue where glue used to be on...

    My new Aria M-300

    Hi everyone!

    My M-300 arrived the other day. It is in desperate need of cleaning, which might be one of the reasons I got it for the price I did.

    Identifying My Mandolin

    Hi everyone! Yesterday I bought my first mandolin, from ebay: an Aria M-300. It's my first time buying any instrument without playing it first. I hope I made a good decision.
