Eastwood Mandocaster 12 string.

Eric2328, 28.04.2017
Had mine now for about a week, and just love it. Promt delivery and well packaged as usual from Thomann. The guitar is well made,good finish,all electrics and pick-ups work great. Ijust needed to do the normal set-up; new strings, adjust saddles, just basic things to make it feel comfortable for myself.No problems with any of the hardware, including the machine heads, everything works well and easy to adjust.Stayed in tune, once the strings have settled in. Unplugged, its ideal for late night practice. Plugged in to my Roland ac33 it sounds close to a proper mando. For gigs i will probably put it into my Fender superchamp, adding a bit of tremolo, or chorus to this little guitar and you can get some really different sounds out of it.Also the gigbag is handy, with good zips and a pocket for spare strings etc.

Still better than the original from Vox

Nik R., 23.02.2018
After I extended the sound picture with the help of a mandolin with acoustic recordings upwards (highly recommended, the last ounce of "angel dust" in the mix !!) but with the Quintenstimmung not so cope, I wanted to buy me a "Mandoguitar".
The choices were:
Vox Mandoguitar (Vintage used from approx. Euro 2000) Duesenberg (¤ 2000) Phantom (Euro 1000) Teo 12 (Euro 1500) + Jerry Jones (Euro 1800). All instruments are available only from USA (inches !!!!) except for the Duesenberg and the Vox, both of which are not built anymore.
Then I discovered the Eastwood Mandocaster12 at Thomann for just under € 500.
Ordered, finally there (4 weeks delivery!) Tested.
The sound: Beautifully bright without cutting heights, comparable to the Duesenberg Mandoguitar 12. The 2 pickups offer enough tonal variations, I like the neck pickup and the middle position of the pickups.
The handling: the fingerboard is pleasantly wide which is important for the short scale! Otherwise good to very good playable, from the 12th fret is naturally very tight
The processing: Unfortunately, unfortunately not great. coarse scratches on the top plate, the screws of the pickguard sit really crooked .... Well, at least the bridge is fine, the strings can be individually (yes, all 12!) Set.
Fascinating: Despite the manufacturing shortcomings, the Eastwood Mandocaster 12 is a serious alternative to Duesenberg (which I've alluded to, in my opinion, the best mandolin guitar there is !!) and much better than the Vox (which is cultish as a cult costs, and always sounds slightly out of tune, who likes?)
At the moment there is no reasonably affordable alternative to Eastwood.
