I decided to put an H5 Hybrid Mandola into my last build batch. Here are a few photos. It turned out great and the sound is awesome. I hope to get an order or two so I can build more of them.

What makes it a hybrid? Is it a mix of mandolas?

Very nice, Eddie. Great work! Love the clean design and black/red coloration.

What's the scale length on it?

I took a couple of different plans and add some stuff of my own. It's not really an H5 in true Gibson sense of the designation.

Thanks Mick. It has a 16.5" scale length.
