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, no matter how minor or insignificant said modification may be in your mind. We simply cannot and will not accept a return if the instrument has been modified in any way, shape or form.

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

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able: but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. O Lord; teach my thy paths. In this verse, Paul tells us that we will always have temptations. Temptations of the flesh and of the mind. Some temptations may seem so overpowering that, at times we may feel that we may surely be overcome and fall into the inequity that has been placed before us. Paul tells us that God will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can stand and that He will provide a means of escape. Christ is the escape and we must call on His devine grace. He can provide the wisdom and courage to withstand and rise above any and all temptation. We must always be focused on Jesus and seek him in times of stress and weakness. He is the Comforter and our escape from temptation. Yes, we may bear any temptation, providing we keep our eyes on Jesus.

Thought for the day; Country music has become a machine…a money machine. The music is no longer real. It’s lost it’s soul. No longer is Country music about lonesome and heartache or grief and loss. The singers today have not lived lonesome. They haven’t lived poor and destitute. Today’s country singer is merely a pretty face in cowboy boots and cowboy hat. Today’s Country music is merely choreographed pop and rap with twang. Country music used to be about life, now it’s merely a pretty face, big production, money and more money.

Perfect example: I recently saw an interview with Taylor Swift on GMA. Taylor was pimping her new project, which she’s calling “my first pop album”. Wrong. Not. Might be the first one she’s admitted is pop, but heck, her stuff has been cleverly disguised  ”pop music” all along.
