There is a common misconception that you need an F-style for playing bluegrass. While this is not true as far as tone, among many players it is expected that you should have an F– style mandolin. Since traditions diehard, you will probably have trouble convincing people otherwise. The truth is, A–style mandolins sound exactly the same as F–Style mandolins. They simply look different. In the end, if you want peer recognition there is some benefit to purchasing the F-style mandolin.
