View Full Version : A good find, nevertheless

This is my second find in less than 10 days, this time it's a Anjo electric mando, with an Evans pickup, unlike most electro-acoustics that have a piezo bridge, this one uses a single-coil pickup, hence sounds better with nickel-wounded strings, although phosphor-bronze also sound fine.

Many sources point us to Samick as a maker, so it's most probably from Korea as it is about 20 years old, according to the seller. It's surprisingly well made, low action, the acoustic and electric sounds are pretty good. Good tuners, stays in tune, good acoustic sound projection. Only paid CAD 150 for it, with a case and capo! The tailpiece is missing its cover but I can replace it.
