Manndolins / EM-4, EM-5, EM-8 Octave / Baritone / Stringed Instrument For Sale

I recently got back into the electric mandolin, (building and playing). I came up with this body style by "morphing"  a few popular styles into one.  Available with 4, 5 or 8 strings. These Manndolins are available in three body types :

1. Hollow body - This version utilizes a traditional style floating bridge and has the most acoustic volume of the three. It's tone is warmer both acoustically and plugged in.   

2. Semi Hollow body - This version has the lighter weight of the hollow body but has a mahogany block under the bridge which decreases the acoustic volume but increases the sustain and feedback resistance. This model uses the Aluminum "wrap around" Bridge/Tailpiece.

3. Solid Body - This version has the least amount of acoustic volume and the most sustain/feedback resistance. It also uses the aluminum "wrap around" Bridge/Tailpiece.
