It sounds amazing I absolutely love it and the strings it comes with will last a few months of occasional playing but with new strings it’s even better the one part that I wasn’t a fan of it’s pick guard you need to tighten it constantly overall it’s good and it lasts 3 years and it’s still nearly like new

I'm mainly a piano player but decided I wanted to learn mandolin so I picked up one these as an "entry level" low cost instrument. I struggled with it for weeks before I managed to convince myself that maybe I wasn't the problem. It turns out the neck "action" was out and could not be adjusted enough to correct it, rendering it impossible to tune properly. Long & McQuade on Bloor in Toronto explained the problem to me and very happily exchanged it for another MM-30, which I now play all the time - it sounds great, and I've really come a long way with it! There is nothing wrong with buying entry level instruments like this, but as a novice it can be very difficult to tell when something is defective. If you have any doubt, don't be embarrassed to go back in to the shop and ask.

Epiphone, makes top quality instruments at a very descent price, and this mandolin is great. Some of the frets needed filing to take out some of the sharp edges, I restrung it left hand and took of the pick guard. This mandolin plays very well and if they made left handed mandolins I would by one. Thanks Long & Mcquade for your lay away policy.

Us lefties get left out way to often. This is the least expensive mandolin out there besides the Denver model. I took the pick guard off and put on new strings. I did not have to file the nut, it seems ok. Under the cover at the base where the strings attach may turn out to be a problem, it has a staggered pattern. I asked Epiphone if this would be a problem but no answer yet. It sounds good so we will see.

Unfortunately for us lefties Epiphone doesnt make left handed Mandolins so I bought this mm-30 and I restrung it left. I am new to the mandolin and I sure didnt want to spend a small fortune,around 600.00 on a true left handed model. Us lefties sure do not have much choice so, oh well, that is the way it goes.

I got one of these for Christmas. Sounds pretty nice, but the 11th fret buzzes when played, almost impossible to play the note F# on the bass string, I think due to a defect -- that fret is seated a little lower than the rest. Don't listen to the previous reviewer who said this was a great instrument because it has electric pickups. It does not.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
