The New York Pro MA-009 is an excellent value for an F-style mandolin with a solid wood top. With a nice sunburst finish and herringbone binding, it looks the part, too. When these are set up properly with good action, the right strings, and proper intonation, they can suit the needs of any player. If you're look for a good first mandolin—or a trusty parking lot festival picker—the MA-009 is hard to beat!
