Case Study: A 1953 Bigsby Electric Mandolin | The Fretboard Journal: Keepsake magazine for guitar collectors
Case Study: A 1953 Bigsby Electric Mandolin
To many, the ultra-rare guitars, mandolins and steels built by Paul A. Bigsby in the late ‘40s and ‘50s are some of the most important electric instruments ever made. Though most guitarists know Bigsby for his famed vibrato, the man himself was a true musical instrument innovator and inventor (and just a fascinating character). Before he started tinkering with instruments and shaping the sounds of Western Swing and country music, he was a motorcycle racer, race promoter, machinist and music fan.

Tiny Moore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Born in the Gulf Coast town of Port Arthur, Texas, in 1920, Moore was the first well-known American musician in any genre whose primary instrument was the electric mandolin.[1] While a member of the Texas Playboys from 1946 to 1950,[2] he played Gibson electric mandolins: at first an EM-125, and sometime after 1948, an EM-150.

This year, I will officially be a pensioner and once my current orders are complete, I will cease production of custom made instruments to find time to make more challenging and interesting subjects of my choosing. These will then be available from time to time without the worry of trying to work to deadlines.

JazzMando.com | Promoting the mandolin as a legitimate, sonorous voice in the jazz genre.
Recently, I was smitten by an impulse to return back to a five string electric (I had given up my 5-string Earnest Boomerang not too long ago), and I began the search for a "mid-priced" electric five. Already owning a Mandobird (IV), I was looking for something a bit less out of the "toy" department, something I could really sink my teeth (or my fingers) into. While fellow jazzer and mentor, Michael Lampert is big on Schwab (certainly one of the world's premiere electric mandolins), I just wasn't in a position to spend those kind of bucks, (I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy...) as electric is something I only dabble in.

G-2 Electric Mandolin - Hamm-tone Guitars & Guitar Making School
The Hamm-tone G-2 Electric Mandolin
This is a mandolin I built a good number of years ago. It has a chambered Swamp Ash body with a carved spruce top and a mahogany neck. Ebony fingerboard and bridge and rosewood binding on the top and the fingerboard. It's set up with 8 tuning machines and a standard style tailpiece; that way you can use it with 4, 5 6 or 8 strings. It has a Seymour Duncan Hot-rails pickup and is setup to have a coil tap on the tone knob, push pull style. It's fun to play if you're a mandolin player and don't want a lousy factory made "pretend-wanna-be-guitar" electric mandolin. This one's the real thing; it's a mandolin.

"It’s hard to make a mandolin rock. Well, it’s hard for most players to make a mandolin rock. Local, left-hand picker Jimmy Ryan has no trouble blitzing through bluegrass or giving his tiny instrument a punk rock feel. ... 'Readville,' the latest from the local mandolin master, is a hootin’, hollerin’ romp."

Rickenbacker Electric Mandolin

More than ten years ago I was having great fun with my acoustic mandolin, and since I love to play electric music as well as acoustic, I made a pilgrimage to Elderly Instruments in Lansing, Michigan – my favorite musical instrument store – to try some electric mandolins and possibly buy one. As usual I had a good time trying a number of the instruments – they have as good a selection as I’ve found anywhere – and finally settled on and purchased a Rickenbacker solid body mandolin.

Building an Electric Mandolin

My electric mandolin project started out as a much more complicated travel/ silent electric mandolin with a built in preamp and a compact speaker/ amplifier combo to act as a built in on the go mini amp. Along with a small body it was originally meant to allow for easy travel.

Paul Shippey mandolin cittern and bouzouki maker...Home
About Shippey

My workshop is in Weston-super-Mare, North
Somerset, England.

I specialise in building mandolins and citterns ; working on a small group of instruments at a time, I maintain a consistently high standard of craftsmanship.

I started building instruments in 1982 and studied Musical Instrument Technology at the London College of Furniture (now London Metropolitan University).

It was while I was a student that I started to play the Mandolin and I decided to make instruments of the Mandolin family.

I went on to set up a workshop in Hackney, East London with luthier Brian Lofthouse, before moving back to the south west of England, where I shared a number of workshops with the late Rod Button, who was a great luthier and friend.
