Welcome to Mandomutt!

Welcome to MandoMutt!!! Thanks for dropping in on our website. MandoMutt, Delilah (aka L’il Pup) and I are so glad you’re here and we hope you’ll enjoy your visit. Whether you’re here looking at one of our acoustic stringed instruments to purchase, trade or just “window shopping”, we hope you like what you see and that you’ll add us to your web favorites and continue to check back with us periodically to check our inventory. We have several new additions to our inventory this week including;

MandoMutt’s Return Policy We offer a 48 hour Approval period on all instrument purchases, but not on trade deals. If you purchase an instrument from us and decide within 48 hours of receipt that it’s not for you, you may return it to us, no questions asked. Buyer is responsible for all shipping fees in event of a return. Additionally, we only accept a return if the instrument is returned in the exact condition as when it left our hands. We will not accept returns if any alterations or modifications of any kind, have been made to the instrument. This includes truss rod adjustments, bridge adjustments or any other alteration, modification or adjustment and so forth.

A word about the MandoMutt Beyond Beast award. As many of our frequent visitors know, our very best instruments may be awarded as a Beyond Beast. You may wonder, just how do we determine a Beyond Beast. We actually have a 30 point number system and six categories, with five being the highest and one being the lowest score in each category. An instrument must score a 28 out 30, or better to be recognized as a Beyond Beast. The six categories are: 1) Tone 2) Volume 3) Fit and Finish 4) Set up and Playability 5) Appointments (bling?) 6) Cosmetic Condition (wear and tear)

Chatter Box

I don’t know about you, but winter is my least favorite season. Snow is okay for about the first hour or so and then I’m ready for it to leave. In fact, the older I get, the less I like snow and, for that matter winter. I have to be careful this time of year, as I tend to get depressed, gloomy and agitated.  I read a bible verse today that is appropriate regarding times of personal struggle or weakness. In 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.  This is dead on. Peter is warning us, I’m sure from his own personal experience, that the devil is right here with us and he preys upon those who are weak, weary and wandering. In particular, he loves to attack believers. Satan looks for any weakness, any negative thought that we may be experiencing and that is precisely where he attacks.

Peter tells us to be sober and vigilant. When we’re down and blue, we need to talk with other Christians and share our troubles. It’s important for us not to isolate, for that is when the devil will roar like a lion. We need to pray to God and give Him our burdens and remain steadfast in our faith and love of Jesus. He can bear all our troubles and burdens and provide whatever strength and courage we need to fight off Satan. 1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

Quote for the day;Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” Abraham Lincoln

Thought for the day; Congratulations to Buddy Guy on his Grammy for Lifetime Acheivement.  Well deserved for a Blues Master and perhaps the greatest blues guitarists of all time.
