    Default The Mighty Cozart! New 8 string electric

    Just got this and it plays and sounds good.Neck was a little chunky.Took care of that.Pickups really work.Tone and volume need improvement.Small body but I like it better than the Ricky or Fender 8 string.

    Funny they take lower bids for a custom hand made.

    you've got your alliterations mixed up - it's either
    - The Mighty Mozart, or
    - The Cool Cozart

    Grabbed one last night because why not. Haven't given in to MAS in a while. Tried an offer like Darryl's and got rejected. Added 4 bucks the next go-around and it'll be here Saturday. But was it really the 'last one' as advertised? Who cares!

    I spend many a late-night hour just jamming on the Mandobird and wanted an 8 string to be able to better replicate acoustic practice without the booming volume of my NF or Flatiron. Plus, I'm an electric player at heart even when I deny it, so there's lots of fun to be had regardless. Sure, I could have spent 3 X's as much for an Eastwood of slightly better quality, but long as I can set it up to be playable, plus it's not something I ever plan on gigging, for just over a $100 it will be worth it. Unless I mod the hell out of it and make it into a beast.

    I'll post pics and reviews once I've have a chance to dig in.

    I am using the Cozart with my electric band.(Guitar,bass and drums)It sounds better than my Mandostrat and have sold it.Buying a Dillion.The pickups work and no weak strings.
    I have my Flatiron and Kentucky for acoustic.Will never buy a four string again.

    I picked up a DSEM 008 (335 style) with a gig bag. Be prepared to spend some cash on a decent bridge and a good set up.

    Also, the pickup is passive. I find it a bit underwhelming. Sure, the push/pull pot makes some difference, but nothing like it the Wild Bill L45S did on the Kentucky.
