  2. Re: UK Luthier to build 4 String Solid Body Electric Mandolin

    Hi All,

    I seem to be spending more time on sourcing a 4 string than playing in recent times. Given this, I am just going to practise more on my 5 string and stick with that. If I see the 4 string...

    Hi Andrew,

    PM'd Pete here a few days ago trying to make sure Clive had got my message. Waiting for a reply. They must be too busy just now.

  5. Re: UK Luthier to build 4 String Solid Body Electric Mandolin

    Hi,

    Still trying to source a nice 4 string emando. Emailed six UK luthiers, but only one replied, Richard of Levens Mandolins.

    Jim,

    Yes, that's my problem too in that I occasionally get into picking with my right hand the string next to the one I am fretting with the left hand. Funnily enough when I know the tune well and...
  8. Re: UK Luthier to build 4 String Solid Body Electric Mandolin

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for the EBay lead. That does look interesting, but it says that he won't ship internationally and when I try to contact the seller to check, it says he does not take questions.

  9. Re: UK Luthier to build 4 String Solid Body Electric Mandolin

    Hi Jim,

    I never quite get the hang of the 5 string, although I think I'm getting better with practice. I just finish up using the top 4 strings!

    In terms of Dave, he won't make one, although he...

    Hi,

    I'm keen to get a Telecaster style mandolin (as shown in the photo in the original post) so I have not contacted the likes of Gary Nava, John Maddock, Paul Shippey as I don't see any evidence...

    Hi,

    Thanks for the replies. I'll try to follow up some of the leads in the next few days.

    I'm sure there must be some UK builders out there who built these in the past or maybe Almuse had...

    Hi,

    I have been actively advertising for and trying to buy a Schwab 4 string emando for most of this year, with no luck. The only one that I found was in Carters, but they could not ship to the UK...

    Re: Vanden mandolins/Mike Vanden

    Hi,

    I realise that this is an old thread, but feel that the original poster was being very unfair to Mike Vanden.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the replies. Sounds like no-one is using a Yamaha THR5 for their emando and everyone is pretty much using something different than each other. A friend had used the acoustic version...
