Mandolin    ten string

2023. Sold


Dirk Shivers (Local pirate) was talking to me years ago about possibly buying a mandolin off of me. We he finally did and came with a listen of wants. One was a multi scale (Fan Fret) which I had never done.

Fan fret made sense with the 10 string as to keep good tension on the CC strings. Think of these like adding the CC from a Mandola.

The other was the colour. I added the shell fret markers to add to the nautical theme.
