    i'm so tempted. has anyone played this in CGDG .... I'd like to have a go at that... bit torn between this and the warren ellis tenor... tempted to be back into the electric sound, but really not into six strings (might have a pop at DADGAD though!)

    ideal Eastwood mandola?
    upgraded humbucker with push/pull knob coil tap.
    1st three pairs in octaves (smallest course in unison).
    My friend has a 70's Manson electric mandola with three single coil PU's and a 5 position selector switch strung like jangles like a mofo.

    I'm tempted to get one of these and make the mods (any pickup suggestions?)
    cut the nut, figure out string gauges, put in the coil tap....
    It's either that or a $1600 elctric Mann (he makes 'em pretty)

    I bought one in the summer, all ok but something didn't feel 'right' just made it into an octave with strings-052/ 038/ 026/014 as a four string...adjusted intonation, action fine....and now it really rocks ! Thought a black scratchplate looked better too, it matches the headstock. Best wishes from southern England xxx

    Seeing this thread bubble to the top is certainly timely. I just got notice that my seafoam green airline mandola just arrived at my house. Work will now pass extremely slowly.
    Looking forward to hearing if anyone has had any more recent luck with modifying these guys...
