    Default Moses McKinley electric mandolins

    Just added Moses McKinley out of Salt Lake to the Cafe Builder database. Really interesting designs for electric mandolins, like what he's doing. Graduate of the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery.

    His words on his Instagram about the purple "F" electric, and normally I'm not a fan of a scroll take like this but I think it works really well, my opinion:

    "I’m now offering F-style electric mandolins, so now there’s a more traditional shape aside from the Flying V and the Explorer. Starting at $800. "

    Check these out snatched form Instagram and his web site. Couple of links for his work:

    I like the purple one a lot. I can't see a pickup on it or tone controls, though I'm sure he's got a pickup somewhere. Very clean looking, perhaps for that reason. Bridge piezo?
