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;

Skip Kelley Mandolins MandoMutt has been a huge fan of Kelley mandolins since we were first introduced in early 2009. I’m sure folks get tired of hearing me talk about how amazing they sound. I love Skip Kelley mandolins so much that I bought a Redwood topped model a couple years back and I tell folks about my mandolin all the time and yet, Kelley mandolins are still relatively unknown in the mandolin world. That may be changing, as Adam Steffey is playing Kelley mandolins these days. Adam took possession of a Skip Kelley F-5 in 2015, but recently exchanged it for a new Redwood topped Kelley mandolin. Here’s a link to Adam playing his 2015 Kelley F-5 at last years IBMA; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkTISFhUrdk

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 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)
