So you've seen the pictures and read my description. But how does the axe perform when it's actually in your hands? It's not as though you can go to a shop and try out half a dozen different electric mandolins to see which one you like.
     To help you out, I offer reviews of electric mandolins, written by mandolin players. Here I'll compile opinions from anyone who cares to weigh in, and with any luck we'll assemble a compendium of information that should help potential buyers make a decision. Click a name on the left to read the review. If you'd care to submit a review of your instrument, or another you've had your hands on, .
Reviews may be edited. By submitting a review, you're granting me the right to reprint it, for free, and you're also affirming that you weren't compensated or otherwise influenced by the instrument's maker. With your review, please include your e-mail address and an overall rating (1–5 mandolins). Opinions expressed in reviews are those of the author, not necessarily those of
