    You were lucky! I've had to go at this piece by piece learning on my own as I went, just trying to get good tone with what I had.

    Yes, and lengthen the scale to 15" and it would be, for me, pointless to try to resist buying one.

    Hi Doc,
    The El Rey has an electromagnetic pickup in it, so it is meant to be played through a 'guitar' amplifier, rather than directly through a PA or 'acoustic' amplifier. People hereabouts have...

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    You won't need distortion, a bit of overdrive will create as dirty a sound and be a bit more versatile with 8 strings.

    It's fun.

    But I prefer to use an 8 string in place of a 12-string guitar...

    Re: Some Questions on New Purchase

    I have a Hathway octave mandolin with a 19" scale. I tune it GDAE, an octave lower than a mando. D'Addario make an octave mandolin set with 12's as the top e. Works for me.

    My usual 'mandola' is actually an Arrow G5 hollow body electric 5 string mandolin with a 15" scale length. It solves a lot of stretching/fingering issues.
