OK folks, I'm thinking about my next mando build.......
I'm thinking solid rim like a Rigel (not a fan of bending)
flat spruce top, Mahogany back (cheap, once I learn what I'm doing I'll carry on with the dear stuff.....)
round soundhole & braced like a guitar & a guitar type bridge (with pins) with a piezo under the saddle.
Basically from a distance I'll look like a giant playing an acoustic guitar..........
So anyway, will a flattop and a guitar style bridge still sound like a mando or should I go away and lie down?
Anyone ever done anything like this and posted photos?
