8 STRING ELECTRIC MANDOLIN FOR SALE

Offered for sale is this recently completed solid body, electric mandolin (e-mando).

800 including gig.bag + shipping.

Please note:

None of the materials used are on any CITES list; also no animal products are used.

Full Specification:

352mm scale length- 8 strings, 19 frets.

Solid ash body with book matched figured ash drop-top.

Highly figured maple neck reinforced with 2 carbon fibre strips.

Note that the neck is fixed to the body with a glue joint to enhance the tone (i.e. not screws or bolts) and there is also a spliced head joint.

Burr walnut head overlay with Nava logo inlay (in aluminium).

Rocklite Ebano fretboard- compound radius, wide evo frets and aluminium position markers (front & side).

Two blade style mini-humbucking pick-ups, each controlled with a 3-way toggle switch which allows the pick-up to be used in two different coil configurations or switched off completely. The humbuckers' output is controlled by a volume and tone control.

A piezo transducer is mounted, under the saddle. This gives a good approximation of an acoustic sound; a third toggle switch allows this pick-up to be turned on or off. Whilst this transducer is powerful enough to be plugged straight into a standard guitar amp, its tone may be enhanced by using a pre-amp or acoustic amp.

The out-put is via a stereo jack-socket and the use of a Y-lead allows the two signals (i.e. humbucker & piezo) to be treated separately. Alternatively the e-mando's jack socket is wired so that you can use a standard mono lead and just use the output from the humbuckers.

The handmade aluminium tailpiece is designed to take ball-end strings. This allows the player to make a custom set from the many different types of electric guitars strings that are widely available.

The instrument has a hand rubbed Tru-Oil and wax finish.

Nut and saddle are made from Graphtech tusq material.

Gotoh MA 40 tuners.

The instrument comes complete with an Ashbury semi-rigid gig-bag.
