Yes, those are microelectronics hiding under that macassar ebony pickguard! Pickguard/pickup (a Kent Armstrong minihumbucker) unit comes away easily to leave acoustic look.

'Spose I should mention....for those mando folks who dig this style....I'd be happy to accommodate you! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif #
This is carved top/back with tone bar construction. I have another model that has same look, but completely different construction technique.

Joe....I don't see 8 strings on that beast...and looks like it has been on steroids!
Just kiddin....I thought this thread was for archtop style MANDOS!!!! # I bet that's why I have felt like the "Lone Stranger" ....went back and looked at the thread title....it IS a bit misleading. I thought it was kinda cold and lonesome in here....shoulda never left home without my scroll! #LMAO # http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif

Here's my latest. Cutaway with pickup, hand carved spruce top & flamed maple back & sides. Ebony tailpiece. Rather easy to play, sounds great.
