Comments about Seagull S8 Mandolin SG, Burnt Amber:
Great mandolin. Has stayed in tune since day 1 of owning - literally no string "break-in" period. Tone is a little more on the brighter side due to size of instrument, but has a solid sound. The mandolin itself is built like a tank. Very robust and well made. Definitely recommend this over cheaper alternatives from other brands. I've tried some of the mandolins in the $100-$300 price range and you really do get what you pay for: the builds are generally flimsier and the intonation not so great. This one has neither of those issues.
Only issue I had is that the rosette around the sound hole came a little faded on mine in one spot (not a consistent coloration). Not a huge deal given all of the other pluses here, but worth mentioning. Mandolin does not come with a case, and given that the body of this instrument is a little narrower than average, finding one with a tight fit has been a challenge.
