New 8 String Electric Mandolin ("Simplicity" Model)

This is the simplest of my electric mandolin models - the same great sound and playability but at a lower price point.

The spec for this one is:

  • Hollow mahogany body.
  • Rocklite ebano fretboard, brass fret markers, EVO gold fretwire, carbon fibre non-adjustable truss rod. Rocklite is an eco-friendly "engineered wood" alternative to ebony, more from the manufacturer.
  • Individual Gotoh SG381 tuners. Burr-redwood headstock overlay.
  • Seymour Duncan cool rails pickup, with parallel/series switch, and volume and tone controls (treble cut). Fully shielded control cavity.
  • Currently set up with D'Addario EJ67 nickel wound strings. Action at fret 12 is 1.25mm on the top e rising to 1.5mm on the G.
  • Nut width: 28mm. Neck depth at nut 20mm. Neck profile: soft V-shape. Scale length is standard mandolin 13 7/8".
  • "Vegan" model with no products of animal origin used in it's construction, this is primarily to make the instrument export/customs friendly. Since there's no Rosewood or MOP, that means I can ship worldwide, and you can travel with it, without having to worry about instrument CITES passports etc.
  • Minimalist EnduroVar satin finish - since this requires much less time to apply than a full gloss "rubbed and buffed" finish I'm able to offer this model at a reduced price point.
  • Instrument comes with limited lifetime warranty against structural defects to original owner.
  • £575 ono.

DeMeglio Model 1A, 1906

This old lady is now in fine playing form following restoration:

  • Fretboard has been levelled and re-fretted reusing the original fretwire.
  • Top has been carefully cleaned and resealed, there is evidence of previously repaired top cracks - these are all sound and needed no further work, and are also normal for an instrument of this age.
  • Machine heads have been stripped and cleaned, and are now working well. All the fixing screws have been replaced as the originals were more corrosion than metal.
  • Instrument has been set up with a set of Martin 10-34 light strings, action is 60thou at fret 12.
  • £250 ono
