Godin A8, natural.
The Godin A8 gets my vote as the best electric mandolin in its price range. Despite the lack of soundholes, the chambered body still produces sufficient volume for acoustic practice, and when you plug it in, you get realistic, woody mandolin tone with no feedback. Piezo pickup with volume control and 3-band EQ help you shape the sound. Gold-plated hardware and compensated adjustable bridge. Nut width is 1.1875". Standard 13.875" scale length.
     I currently have two Godin A8s in stock:
