Why should I buy an A-Style Mandolin?
A-style mandolins feature a tear drop or pear-shaped body with the upper sections of the body curving into the neck.
Although sharing very similar sound and playability characteristics with F-style mandolins, it's worth considering that given their smaller body design, A-style mandolins can feel more compact and therefore easier to handle and get to grips with if you're a beginner who's just setting out on your mandolin playing journey.
