A8 Mandolin
As with all of the A-Series instruments, the A8 mandolin mixes traditional tone woods with modern design concepts and electronics. The two-chamber body is routered from a solid block of mahogany and capped with a solid spruce top. The top is voiced with a unique combination of X and fan bracing that produces exceptional sound and projection, even when played acoustically. But plugged in is where the A8 truly excels. The individual RMC saddle transducers run through an RMC preamp voiced specifically for the A8.

The A8 is available in two colours: Natural, with a satin finish or Cognac Burst, with a high gloss finish.

I had heard of this mandolin from a friend and read as many reviews as I could find. I also searched for whatever I could find on Godin company and searched for Godin factory. Robert Godin does the tour himself and he is a very personal and comfortable person and explains the making of the instruments wonderfully. The mandolin plays acoustically and electrically and has a slightly lower pitch than my Gibson and my Ovation. Acoustically it is much louder than I expected. I play this mostly acoustic and when I play electric it becomes a different instrument that gives itself to some great grimy tunes; Dirty Old Town, Whisky In The Jar, and a litany songs that must be played loud. Very satisfying and a nice treasure.
