Default Iíve come to terms: I have too many guitars

Itís a problem. I just canít justify buying another guitar, no matter how many beautiful examples I find out there in the wild, just waiting to be plucked.

So I bought a Mandolin instead.

Thumbs down

I didn't read your post at first, and I thought, "That's one funny looking guitar!"
Have fun with it!

Nice!

Look at the bright side. You didn't buy a new guitar!

That is a pretty mando btw. Congrats.

a choice I'm delighted to be working on myself. I have a great collection of guitars in which there are no duplicates in terms of style, sound and construction. But only one mandolin so the solution is obvious, right?!

Yep. Now you also need an oval hole mando, a resonator mando, a mandola, octave mandolin......

I'm with you. For awhile I was thinking about trading a OOOC-16 I never play for another acoustic, but I already have two dreads I'm thrilled with. So I've been leaning towards a mandolin. I've also read a lot if positive comments on Eastman mandolins, so I bet you enjoy that one a bunch.
