    Default Washburn Mandola

    Hi All,

    I'm hoping to find some information about the Washburn M226SWK Mandola. There is some stuff about it on Washburn's website but I can't find an Internet dealer that has one or even what the price for one is.

    Does anyone have any experience with this mandola or have any additional information about it?


    Young & Thin maybe in but Old & Fat is where it's at!

    Just looking at the Washburn link for a minute, the information is full of mistakes and/or contradictions.
    It just shows how poor the information can be, and how bad the fact/error checking can be, on some of these websites.

    In the description, they don't even refer to it as mandola. Then if you check the "specs" tab, they list a scale of 13.75". That's a mandolin, not a mandola. Apparently without a bridge (bridge is "n/a"). My guess is that this instrument doesn't exist, or at least not yet. "Coming soon", maybe?

    I was going to say pretty much what Jeff did after looking at the link. An unknown instrument with an oval hole, from the "bluegrass series", that has a mandolin scale and is strung with guitar strings? Things that make you go "hmmm..."
