I'm looking for a mandolin that has factory installed pickups to be played in a loud band invironment (rock & blues band). How it sound accoustically is not that important - I have a Turkey Creek mando I am very happy with for those jams.
The Godin and the Ovation both seem to fit the bill and was wondering if one would fit my needs better than the other. I would like to spend in the $500-$600 range and am hoping to pick up a used instrument.
Also, if there's a make/model other than the above mentioned - feel free to bring it up!
