    I was referring to 4 string or eight and not necessarily in a rock context. When it comes to 5 string of course the range is expanded. Advantages of an acoustic mandolin in a folk/trad/bluegrass context are obvious.

    Anybody mention Mike Kang yet?

    Nash The Slash in the band FM. There's a pretty awesome example here:

    When you have an hour or two, go to YouTube, type “Sam Bush electric mandolin” into the search box, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

    Old thread...but John Abercrombie experimented quite a bit with electric mandolin back in the 80s.

    When you ask, why something was not mentioned, does that become an endorsement?
    Case in point : " No Back to Back, Jethro Burns and Tiny Moore?"
    none the less It's a good one..

    Yes, it is. I have that one only on vinyl, but I bet it’s on youtube.

    This one is, the complete album. Several cuts are electric.

    The electric instrument on It Ain't Necessarily Square is guitar. Jethro was a great guitarist as well, in spite of his own assessment: "If I'd have spent as much time on the guitar as I did on the mandolin, I might have been pretty good.."

    best way to hear the Back to Back project is to get the 2 CD re-release on Acoustic Disc. The second CD is all the out takes. There's nothing wrong with any of them, Tiny and Jethro play different solos on all of them, so you get double doses of their genius

    That should have been obvious, sorry. It’s a great collection nonetheless.

    I should give a shout out to an album I recently discovered: Paul Buskirk's HOT PICKIN' (1975). When I posted about it in April, the entire album was on YouTube, but alas, that is no longer the case.

    It may be the first LP to feature an electric mandolin as a lead instrument throughout.

    Billy Flynn did a good blues album several years ago.

    I have a long out-of-print blues LP by Johnnie Young, "I Can't Keep My Foot From Jumping".

    Gonna revive this thread cause I love seeing and learning the variety of artists. Thanks for all who contributed to it!

    Mike Kang of SCI was the first one I'd seen or heard at first. The second artist I'd really seen use the emando exclusively was Jamie Masefield with the Jazz Mandolin Project.

    Hey while we're digging into electric mando history....

    does anyone have the record Rick Hall (legendary Muscle Shoals producer) made where he plays Fender mando?

    I loved playing my 5 string electric on this track. The tune was recorded live and I immediately went back and played a second solo with myself. I considered playing guitar but really liked the vibe of the two electric mandolins.

    I play a 5 string on this track and you can compare the sonic differences between an electric guitar and electric mandolin.

    Mike Sivilli of Dangermuffin is playing a Hammer semi hollow body guitar (I think) and we are riffing back and forth.

    I ran the my mandolin through an old Fender Bassman and a Carr Rambler with a Line 6 Delay to create a stereo rig and Analogman modded Tube Screamer.

    I see that Rick Hall has a mandolin credit on an Alabama album, When It All Goes South. Is that it? I am a big fan of Rick Hall and most everything that they made in that studio, but please don’t make me listen to an entire Alabama album.

    Not a whole album and it’s been posted before but go to about 3:37 on this YouTube clip and hear what I regard as the greatest electric mandolin solo in recorded history, by the legendary Johnny Gimble.

    Freedom Hills to Muscle Shoals Rick Hall with Hugh Banks

    pictured with a cream colored mandocaster on the cover...fiddle tunes, gospel tunes, country, pop

    cool sounds, on "The Rose" it sounds like a choir of electric mandos played tremolo with some effect added backing up the clean melody

    he had a great tremolo!
