Re: Washburn Mandola
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?
