I have been playing guitar for many years and relatively recently was bitten by the mandolin bug. I like all kinds of music but here in New Hampshire the opportunity to play with others is usually confined to traditional Contra Dance music which generally consists of Irish, British, Scottish, and French Canadian fiddle tunes played by acoustic instruments such as fiddles of course, guitars, mandolins, banjos, penny whistles,button accordians, sometimes Uilleann Pipes; and lately in the group with which I play : a piccolo and a cello. I currently play an Eastman MD-605 A-style mandolin but hope someday to own a Gibson F4 (shown.) Hope springs eternal.
