Thread: 4 string El Rey Mandolin

  1. #1

    Default 4 string El Rey Mandolin

    Hello,
    Has anyone tried to mount only 4 strings on an Eastman El Rey mandolin without modifying nut and bridge ?
    Do you think it can sound as a jazz guitar with its humbucker and proper amp setting ?
    Thanks

    I didn't try it on mine, but I don't see why not.

    Thank you Nashville 🙂
    Can you obtain from your El Rey a mellow sound similar to a jazz guitar?

    I've got the jazz guitar version and the pickup, a Kent Armstrong, is terrible. Great neck for jazz but no pop.
