Introducing our Wildwood series of thru-neck eMandos.
Every build features a multi-laminate thru-body neck & smooth carved heel allowing optimum upper fret access with a Wenge centre seam & English Ash body wings, fixed bridges, zebra coiled humbucking pickups, offset dot fret markers, 2mm fret wire, handcut bone nut, Switchcraft jack socket, shielded control cavity and satin nitro cellulose finish as standard.
We are currently able to offer these models in both 4 & 5 string 'super-strat' design but custom options are also available.
Thru-neck designs are inherently stronger than a bolt on and are far less likely to be affected by temperature & humidity changes.
Due to the nature of neck-through instruments, they tend to have better craftsmanship than their bolt-on counterparts.
It takes time to make these instruments, and doing it wrong can potentially ruin the entire project, which is why you typically see neck-through-body options on more expensive instruments, like high-end production models and custom shop designs.
For mass-produced guitars, bolt-on is much easier and cost-effective to make compared to neck-through-body, and this is why it’s the preferred choice for many manufacturers and millions of consumers.
Unfortunately, this can also mean that those guitars don’t have as much attention to detail and care than neck-through models. Read more...
IN THE WORKSHOP
JAMIN UNBOXING HIS BELMUSE LP
"Hi, Guys. I am very happy to have this instrument in my hands.
As soon as I could plug the mandolin into an amp, I played it until dawn. She's fantastic! It weighs a ton, has a crazy sustain, the hardware is very pleasant, the key is perfectly fluid, all this gives it a very warm sound while it is a very high-pitched instrument at the base.
I said to myself, "Chris & Pete - What a crazy duo!". And when I read your information I realised, "They're even crazier than I thought! »
I've been playing mandolin for a long time, but I'm French. And you know as well as I do that we make wine better than guitars or mandolins.
I continue to get to know our "child". It will be my professional mandolin thanks to which I will build my new show. Then you'll see it everywhere. Thank you very much for all this information and advice. The only thing that's not done right is the emoji behind the business card!!^^^"
