Everybody has to start somewhere–and every beginning mandolin player is fortunate to be able to afford the finest entry-level mandolin ever made–the Rover RM-25S! This price-leading, top-selling starter instrument has a solid spruce top–just like the expensive models. The sides and back are mahogany, and the elevated 20-fret fingerboard is set above the top to allow more top vibration. The beautiful, high-gloss sunburst finish immediately catches the eye–but this fine instrument only LOOKS expensive! It’s priced easily within range of any student–or player of another instrument who is ready to try the mandolin. You just can’t lose with a sterling value like the RM-25S from Rover!
