I don't think they're a particularly complex-sounding mandolin. A good basic pancake, however. I believe they're flat fingerboard.

I owned other pancakes - best of the bunch are the flatirons.
Catt's experiences with these are similar to mine. I actually own a couple, both of which I bought locally off Craigslist for not much money at all.

I met Mike Dulak at the 2001 Healdsburg Guitar Festival, where he was serving as an emcee and I gave a seminar. We ended up playing music late into the evening one night, and he was pretty fun to jam with.
