Re: Flirting with the 5-string mandolin (again)
Penta Systems P5, Steve Ryder slimmed down the baseball bat like neck, to be more like his 5 strings,
then replaced the 5 bridge pieces with RMC piezo divided pickups and a 2nd jack to hook up to guitar synths..
I liked my CGDA 4 string.. found the Roland guitar synth has nothing above the highest note on an electric guitar,
Which is not that far up on the E string on a Mandolin.. (i expect adding a piano synth will go higher )
