It plays sort of like a uke-sized guitar, but not tuned like either. Tuning is like a violin (GG DD AA EE, from low strings to high). Steel strings like a guitar, but frets are close together like a uke. Hard to play with fat fingers. ;)

Rogue is a great "I'm thinking about trying this instrument" brand. The quality is bargain basement but it's good enough to get a foothold, especially if you're coming from guitar. I had a Rogue mandolin a dozen years ago, and loved it enough to buy a "real" one a couple of years later. This won't be a forever instrument, but it's a lot better than spending $300 on a slightly higher-quality instrument only to discover you have no interest in actually playing mandolin.
I think I'm losing my religion, this is the Deal of Evermore!

Seriously, very tempting. Even if this is Rogue's bottom tier of instruments, it would be fun to have around…
They're saying the same thing as you, you are just depriving them of the experience of learning for themselves if this is a good deal or not. If you hadn't liked the instrument, this would have been the right beginner one. It still is. You learned that by playing it until you upgraded. The facts are the same, only you are enforcing your interpretation of the facts on everyone.

Great price for a decent beginner mandolin. Bought my son this for Christmas and he's been happy with it. Never knew target carried this brand, only musicians friend. Thumbs up!

dont have this exact one, i got the mando with the pickup from musician's friend for about 90 bucks before tax in december. it was a good purchase. intonation is a little funky tho, just be warned. if you can live without amplification, this is a solid deal.

also, how often do you get the option of a black mandolin?

The seller actually is Musician's Friend. This is third party via Target. There are a bunch of ukuleles half off too.
