I have been wanting a mandolin for a while but didn’t want to spend a lot. On the other side I wanted it to have electronics which tend to make them a bit more pricey. This week I bought two.

An acoustic Ovation with onboard. This is the offshore version that has mostly good reviews. A bit of a beater but I really like it.

Next is an Eastwood Mandocaster. Basically a case queen with all the goodies still inside including a Eastwood branded picks, bottle opener and pegwinder.

I like these both for having a fixed bridge. Only downfall is it appears a little harder to find ball end strings. Although I read about the trick you can do with a saved ball and loop end I would prefer the former. Anybody know a good source?
