    Default Rigel carved body mandolins

    I recently played a Rigel carved body mando (G5) and was impressed with the sound and intrigued by the construction. Are there many Rigel owners here on the forum? I'd like hear your comments.

    thanks

    There's a social group for Rigel owners elsewhere on this site - check out those threads.

    I love the sound a feel of my Rigel Q. In fact I was considering a G5 recently but decided some time to think about whether I was going to have a build done. They are great to play. I played the one at Elderly and it was really great.

    I'm in love with my Rigel R100. It sounds better and better acoustically as time goes by. I play it plugged in through our sound board and frequently receive compliments on the sound from both musicians and listeners. It holds its own in jams; it's not a banjo killer but can be easily heard. I will never part with it.
