If you’re looking for just the right Mandolin for sale, I encourage you to really consider what parts of your purchase are most important to you.
Ideally your perfect mandolin will comprise all the features from this list that are most important to you. The relevance of some of these may be affected by how good you are at playing the mandolin, and how much you like to keep your instruments on display for their good looks, versus just listening to their beautiful sound.
For a real mix of old, new and vintage mandolins, I have found that eBay has a surprising selection of Mandolins for sale, as well as accompanying items like mandolin cases, mandolin strings, bridges, mandolin tuners, picks, etc.

I had no idea that eBay would have such a fine selection (over 1,000 when I checked) of Mandolin instruments and parts for sale.
I was actually surprised to learn that Amazon.com also has mandolins for sale. One of the great thing about Amazon, is their mandolin reviews. Lots of people who buy products from Amazon.com return to the community to review them. There are lots of great mandolin reviews on their website, so I suggest you take a look at Amazon as well, especially if you’re in the market for a new Mandolin and/or you want to get a specific type of Mandolin that you’ve already researched (brand, type, etc.).
