    love your work! which 8-string model that you build is most successful/versatile for having a "true" mandolin sound, and what amps seem to work the best with these electrics?

    Found it o YouTube, sounds really nice. The only you didn't mention was scale length, so?

    Hey PJ, scale length is 16"....Glassweb....my favorite 8 string (and most customers) is the EM-8 semi-hollow body..no feedback problems and the resonance of the semi-hollow gives it some acoustic qualities. They sound best through a nice small tube amp..here's one:

    Hey thanks Jonathan... your playing and the mandolin sound great! The video was VERY helpful giving me insight into what these instruments can do. I'm assuming a solid-body 8-string with advanced electronics can be quite versatile in other ways, yes? Any videos of a "Super 8"?

    I've always liked the cool-factor of the neck-through on the acoustics. Personally, I hate doing neck resets, so I 100% value the durability of such a join.

    Nice work as always, Jon.
    Hereby & forthwith, any instrument with an odd number of strings shall be considered broken. With regard to mix levels, usually the best approach is treating the mandolin the same as a cowbell.
