Re: 18" Scale Eastwood Airline Electric Mandola - GDAE or DGBE?
Since the Kay guitar I decided to sell was only getting low ball offers, I contacted Mike at Eastwood about his trade in deal, & today received my new Airline Mandola, with hard case. It looks as good as or better than it does online, & I'm thinking it may turn out to be fun. Tuning it, though, it felt like it might could go to mandolin tuning with the strings on it, which look, as someone noted on the cafe, to be bronze(ball ends). It seems to sound okay,but I think the strings will need to be switched for something else before long.
