Project Description

This octave mandolin is an instrument of the mandolin family but with a longer string length (scale). The model shown here has a vibrating string length of 20 inches which allows the instrument to be tuned an octave lower than the traditional mandolin.

All my instruments are customizable on certain dimensional parameters as well as the choice of wood.
