New 5 String Electric Mandolin

The spec for this one is:

  • Hollow mahogany body, spruce top with quilted maple overlay.
  • 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. Qulited maple headstock overlay.
  • Seymour Duncan cool rails pickup, with parallel/series/single coil switch, and volume and tone controls (treble cut). Fully shielded control cavity.
  • Currently set up with D'Addario nickel wound strings. Action at fret 12 is 1.25mm on the top e rising to 1.5mm on the G and 1.75 on the low C.
  • Nut width: 36mm. Neck depth at nut 20mm. Neck profile: soft C-shape. Scale length is standard mandolin 13 7/8". The nut width on these is chosen to put the top 4 courses (GDAE) at the same spacing they would be on a 28mm nut mandolin. As it happens, this means they match up with a standard acoustic guitar nut as well.
  • "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.
  • EnduroVar semi-gloss finish.
  • Instrument comes with limited lifetime warranty against structural defects to original owner.
  • £650 ono.
