Welcome to MandoMutt!

Thank you for dropping in on our website. MandoMutt II, 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.

A word about the MandoMutt Beyond Beast Award. As many of our frequent visitors know, our very best instruments may receive the much coveted Beyond Beast Award. 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

Today’s Bible Verse;

Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Quote for the day;We have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us. Abraham Lincoln

Question of the day; Ever notice that whenever someone is looking up information online, they’re “researching”? I suppose that makes us all scientists. Web Scientists. Or Google Scientists. Or Yahoo Scientists?

Thought for the day: I love all kinds of music…except bad music. I love blues, old rock and roll, vintage country and western, swing, all styles of New Orleans music, gospel and bluegrass. There is what I call “bad music” in all genres, however. Case in point; some of the bluegrass music I hear, particularly modern, or contemporary bluegrass is often five guys and/or gals all playing their instrument as fast, furious and loud as they possibly can. The players are often very talented, but they have no discipline whatsoever. Sometimes it’s hard to even find a melody in their tracks. To me, this is bad bluegrass, or maybe it’s not even bluegrass music, I don’t know. Perhaps it should be called Punk Grass, or Acid Grass (I think this was a John Duffey thing) or maybe just Badgrass, or Boograss.
