    EM8 Journey progressing

    A few months ago I purchased an inexpensive Cozart solid body em8 from a fellow Cafe member. He, in his words, "hot rodded" it with stratocaster pick-ups. Initially I had no interest in the pick-ups...
  5. Re: Ashbury AM-240 Solid Body Electric Mandolin

    2 or 3 years ago I visited Elderly in Michigan and played every mandolin available. The best playing and sounding mandolin to my ears (including some high dollar mandolins) was a Northfield...

    Re: First mandolin

    Just my humble opinion but I would increase your budget by $100 and buy a used entry level Eastman or Kentucky from the Cafe classifieds. Then if you find the mandolin not for you or you progress to...
