Really nice! I play an Eastman MDC805 mandocello converted to an AR605. I suspect the mandocello models may be braced or graduated more heavily than the guitars.

I always use 13's. I really like Newtone, used them for quite a while before switching to Martin Retro monels, which I liked better.

This past year I tried out Ernie Ball aluminum bronze and really like them. They're much louder and twangier, more of an old school archtop sound. They still work ok with the mag pickup I added.
