I have played a RC mandolin for several months and I highly recommend this maker to anyone. the Mandolin has great sound, great chop, beautiful finish and the action is very very nice. I have had 4 Gibson's, A12, F4, F5, F12 ( all great mandolins ) and I would put the RS up against any of them. Compared to the prices of the big name instruments, you can't beat these mandolins. This Guy does outstanding work. Five Star *****
