Sergio Lara
is a common sight on the music scene in Austin, Texas. He writes: "I play a '62 Fender electric mandolin, all stock original and a Godin A-8 and run them thru a Roland Cube 60 amp and just use a little reverb with an Alesis Nanoverb. Sometimes I put a little chorus on the Fender and very seldom some distortion for rocking solos."
    In the 1980s Sergio was a co-owner of Unicorn Mandolins and worked on some electric designs. You can find out more about Sergio at his Web site and MySpace page.
