Please disregard the other reviews, for this mando rocks! The tuners are rock solid as is the bridge. Intonation can be adjusted easily with the screws on the bridge. Great strap holder as well. I was and still are amazed at how well it holds its tune. The sound is incredible too! For the price you cannot go wrong! If by some reason it turns up defective - simply send it back free of charge. Although I doubt that will happen considering at how well it is packaged. Mando was wrapped in soft packing paper, placed in a tight case box and that was placed in a bigger shipping box with plenty of packing paper. Guitar center and Rogue hit the ball out of the park on this one! I ordered over the phone from my local store, their customer service was awesome! They even called me after I got it to make sure everything was cool. Thanks Shane!

Had some flaws. Bridge was glued so could not set intonation. However wasn't expecting much for what I paid for it. Sounds pretty good. Doesn't look to bad. Got it to learn how to play it. More of a guitar player.

    Comments about Rogue RM-100A A-Style Mandolin:

    The instructions that come with the mandolin are written as if you are installing the strings for the first time. Disregard these instructions as the mandolin comes with the strings already on. Here is the confusion.
    The mandolin was out of tune on the 12th fret. Raising or lowering the bridge will not help. The instructions should tell you that the bridge is moveable, fore and aft. "Lay the bridge down" is what?, confusing. The strings hold the bridge in place. It just slides wherever you put it. When positioned correctly, the pitch is perfect at the 12th fret. I highly recommend this instrument for starters. I feel the fret board is too narrow for me and down the road I may buy a mandolin with a wider fret board. For now, this mandolin is fun to play and sounds great.

      Using for learning to play. I love the sound this instrument makes. I am very disappointed that after 1 month a part is cracked and will break. I will be contacting this seller and hope they will help fix it. A well-made product shouldn't have had this issue. I hope Guitar Center makes it right by me.

        Comments about Rogue RM-100A A-Style Mandolin:

        This mandolin has great tone and is manufactured well for the price, but be willing to put some work into maintaining the sound and playing quality of this instrument. I had to buy multiple sets of strings because the high E strings kept breaking, and I have had to adjust the bridge multiple times to fix a tinny dissonance in a couple frets on the A string. Overall, though, the instrument is good for what you're paying.

            Comments about Rogue RM-100A A-Style Mandolin:

            Much better than expected. I lowered the nut slots a little bit for better action. Bridge height was already ok. Good 'beater' instrument that you don't have to worry about damaging. The tone as-is was not particlarly impressive but I make it sound somewhat better by using a stick-on piezo pickup plugged into a guitar amp with some EQ and 'acoustic' effects and a little reverb, sweetens it right up.

            The instrument is well made and nicely finished. Out of the box the intonation was very bad. Easily fixed with a setup. Tone is respectable for a beginner instrument. Happy for the price. Jeweler's saw frame and welding tip cleaning rods make for cheap nut slotting files to bring the action down at the nut.

              Bought this as a gift for my fiance. He's an experienced guitar player who wanted to learn the mandolin. This mando is great for beginners to learn on, though I don't know how great it'd be for a professional. This is perfect for him to have fun playing around the house. The silver cover over the string does buzz sometimes, but it's easy to take off.

                  Comments about Rogue RM-100A A-Style Mandolin:

                  I bought this mandolin as a beginner. It succeeded in sparking my interest, although, I would never recommend purchasing it. After 2 months of playing, it started to cave in and completely lowered the left side of the instrument (G and D strings), which caused the G string to buzz violently when certain notes were played. More then that, the overall action does not sound well on this instrument. If you are seriously considering playing the mandolin, my recommendation would be to spend the extra 100-200$ on a better mandolin, I wish I would have.
