    Good for you; you're an example that we all should respect. Hope you get as much joy from your mandolin, as your wealthier colleagues do from theirs.

    Re: Blueridge vs Eastwood Classic

    Thanks Micky. Could you peek inside the f-holes and let us know if it is a full hollow body, or semi - a semi hollow has a solid block running from the neck to the tail that pickups are mounted into.
