    Re: Crestline 'Mandolin'?

    Measure distance from zero fret to 12th fret and double it; that the nominal scale length(actual will be slightly longer-maybe 1/8"). I suspect bridge is located incorrectly.

    If you run "Condino douglas" in this forum's search, you'll get some results from back in the aughts. Whether suitable for flat tops: don't think that ever came up.
