jlarremore Posted January 24, 2009 Report Share Posted January 24, 2009 I've been going over the logistics of converting a kid's electric guitar into a mandolin. I need some extra brains to help me think this through. This is basically what I would start with -> Kids Electric Guitar On my list I know I at least have to do the following. What else can you think of or is there something else I'm missing? 1. Add 2 more tuning keys. 2. Switch pickup to bass pickup ... a small one. 3. change bridge to accept 8 strings 4. Find an 8 slot nut. Anyone ever done this or have some advice. I think I might could do it, but I'm looking for pitfalls and things I didn't see or expect. Maybe the frets aren't close enough. Am I crazy ... maybe you shouldn't answer that last one. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
