I have made up my mind to learn mandolin, banjo, and resonator in that order hopefully. I believe from the information I have obtained and an observation of the skills I possess I should be good at least at one of these. Since part of my own personal style of guitar playing relies on bluegrass and I can make a guitar resemble a banjo or mandolin, I bet I can pick up one of these fairly quickly. So does anyone have any recommendations for a starter mandolin. I have looked at epiphone, Washburn, and rogue. If I only spend $150 on one will I regret it? Is that $50 rogue a POS? I read and watched a bunch of reviews saying it was good. Any help is appreciated, thank you.
