    Default Buster Mountain Longhorn Mandolin

    I like the Danelectro story and want a real Dano someday. Buster Mountain sure does a good job too.

    Where do I find info on Buster Mountain Mandolins? A quick Google search only resulted in this thread.

    I recently purchased an inexpensive used COZART 8 string mandolin from a Cafe member who in his words had, "hot rodded with Strat pick-ups".
    I bought it for silent unplugged play for my wife's benefit. But, after doing considerable set-up work, I am having fun with it and it certainly suits a different use than my beloved acoustics of which I have always preferred to use a mic, even though some of them have K & K twins. The electric is enticing me to play some rock & roll which I typically do not play.
    So, who knows, maybe a better 4, 5, or 8 string may be in my future.
    Stiver A style (MAS has stopped here)
    Kentucky KM-950
    Keith Edward Coleman A style, oval hole Mandola
    Weber Gallatin A Mandola "D hole"
    Rogue 100A (current campfire tool)
    Cozart (unplugged emando silence for my usually tolerant wife)

    The electric mandolin is its own thing for sure thing. Hot Rod is very apropos. I have not heard a sound clip for the Buster Mountain.

    Brian Oberlin sure can lay down some rubber.

    And I think my Arrow G5 was originally owned by Brian, though I bought t from Mass Street Music.

    I was looking for something different and experimented with steel guitar a little but soon was discouraged due to perhaps my age and lack of talent. The solid body mandolin was as I previously wrote to give my wife a break when unplugged. The emando is a different thing from an acoustic while being closer to my roots and with a learning curve less steep than steel guitar, yet providing the "something different" I was looking for.
