    Re: New Mandolin Day em8!

    Not really sure what the top wood is. I assume maple. Being a solid body I didn’t have the same level of interest in the type of wood I have when I’m considering an acoustic.

    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...
  18. Re: Ashbury AM-240 Solid Body Electric Mandolin

    Too much to risk for my sensibilities. I pulled the trigger on a US built solid body em8.
