I received a couple of gifts from the wife of my boss a few days ago. They were souvenirs purchased from the family's recent overseas vacation.
While chatting with her, she asked me if I have knowledge and experience with mandolins, as she is buying a mandolin for her grandchild and don't know which one to purchase.
Well, neither do I! But, being the web savvy person that I am, I scoured the internet and found a mandolin buying guide that she could refer to. That's the best I could assist.
Hopefully, she doesn't come back to me with more questions. HAHAHA
