Been digging around looking for info on Eastwood's Mandocaster.
[I'm looking for a workable 8 string replacement for my Vessel F5 in a rock band setting. Since I already play a Mandobird and lug the amp around, I thought I'd get a solidbody electric because I could avoid plugging into the PA.]
All of the posts I've seen have indicated that some tweaking was necessary to get the mandolin in excellent playing shape. Is there anyone out there who has one straight off the shelf that needed no work? And if so, can you tell me where you got it. That shop may have done some set up work, and that would be good to know.
