'Saucy Jack' Electric 6 String Mandola with 21" Scale Lengh custom build
Custom ordered by the Minstrel Rav'n, Indiana, USA.
Dave almost exclusively plays mandolas and wanted to experiment with octave strings on the lower two (like a 12 string guitar) leaving the higher two plain strings available to bend.
We used our favoured approach of a muti-laminate through neck with English ash wings & found a gorgeous length of Cocobola for the fingerboard. Tuners are Schaller.
We airbrushed his pirate logo on the upper bout & turned the build around in 5 weeks from concept to delivery.
