    Re: Very small mandolin

    I think that's what folks used to call a pocket mandolin or a piccolo mandolin. Think one octave higher in pitch than a mandola.

    You are more likely to find what you're after by making a Wanted Classified ad. We don't use the forums for commerce. The Classifieds see far greater traffic.

    It would be cool to get one but, man, it took a LONG time for the scroll to get finished on this. I also find the inlay in then neck way to busy. Just one galaxy each on 3,5,7, 10, 12, and 15.
