overated 12/12/2010

For being called Mandolin Bros, they have an awfully lithe collection of quality mandolins. Inexplicably, NO mandolas, NO octave mandolins and only one round-back--which was dead as a doornail. They have half a dozen higher quality mandolins in the back, none of which were spectacular, though they seem to think so. The F-2 at nearly 10K was the best, but needed a re-fretting and set-up badly. Very friendly staff. Good place for getting a starter/intermediate instrument. more

Hack job 12/8/2007

I took my 30 year old Martin D-35L guitar to this shop based on their reputation. I was stunned when I got it back after a simple setup job. I found not only 1, but 2 scratches that obviously were the result of careless, sloppy workmanship. One was parallel to the bridge saddle (indicating a slip of a sharp tool while working on the unprotected surface). The other was a long scratch on the headstock (again due to sloppy work while working on the nut). An attempt was made to try and buff this one out, only to make matters worse by creating a sheen on the otherwise mat finish. The owner tried to snow me with some song and dance about every transaction being an exchange, where I leave something of me, and they of them, like shaking hands. What a crock! Then he tried to get me to sign a non-disclosure agreement (to prevent a posting like this one) to get a refund. His lawyer just so happened to be there at the time. I refused to sign and walked out empty handed. He called me later that evening and agreed to send the refund, which he did. Never again would I entrust them with my treasured instruments. It's really a shame because this shop has a beautiful collection of instruments. I would love to do business with them, but as they say: "once bitten, twice shy" more

Don't know much about stringed instruments, but 11/14/2005

I don't know much about guitars, but this place has a beautiful collection of guitars and mandolins in an artistic setting/decor. The workers know what they are talking about, and all my friends who play guitar love this place. It is much better than Rustic down the block. You should pay a visit here just to admire the beautiful instruments or if you're thinking of buying one of these pricey beauties. more

A Music Lover's Paradise 7/26/2005

Mandolin Bros. is THE place for serious musicians. Their selection of stringed instruments (many that are rare) is second to none. The staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable about their trade. The technicians are experts in repairing stringed instruments. I brought my guitar in for a minor repair years ago, and they did not even charge me for it! I highly recommend this store. If you are in the market to buy a new instrument, or to have one repaired, this is THE place to go. more
