$450 from Folk Musician. Not bad for an all solid wood F-Style. Their set-up work was meticulous. The curve of the bridge "feet" precisely matches the curve of the top, neck is straight, intonation good.

Ed Nice mandolin is that in a reasonable price range.Iv'e see other morgan monroe's that were at a nice price ,under 1000.00 or even undr 500.00.If you don't mind me asking I have a Old Hickory from Nashville Tenn.It's blond actually you can go to my site and see it there,in my picture's I had an old 1915 Gibson Model "a"that I loved for a long time but it needed some love and I did'nt have time or the money to put into it.So I sold it.Good luck on the new mandolin

That is the Radius attached via the putty that came with it. I just couldn't figure out how to mount it inside, especially since I wanted to try various placements to optimize the sound. Right below the bridge seemed to work best. Even with the oval sound hole, internal placement might be difficult. Plus on mine, the tailpiece is cast and I was afraid to drill a hole in it to really complete an internal installation. You mention painted black - mine was black from the start.

Good luck with it. It is pretty sweet sounding.

Ed- Is that your mando in the picture? Did you put that Baggs Radius on? I just got a new Kelly oval hole and a Raduis but was going to put it inside for cosmetic porpuses, but that looks pretty sweet painted black

Ed: Click the Camera icon in the toolbar above where you enter a comment. First be sure to have the cursor where you want the picture to appear. From there select browse, find the image on your computer you want to display the click the Add button.

The text "code" is normal and will be as such until you click the Add Comment button. Just learn to work around the code that is inserted.

I wish work wouldn't get in the way of the fun stuff! Here's a picture of my new mandolin. Well, everytime I try to link to a picture, it just inserts a bunch of text code in the box. Anyone know how to get a picture to attach? I have pictures on My Page but can't get them here.
