    Default Upside down Irwin

    I'm guessing this model doesn't have any experience actually playing mandolin. Lol!

    Well the photo explains it all: the only way you can play in the mirror-G-clef is to hold the mandolin upside down.

    The name is not Irwin, it is Irin. It also comes with a Wipe, 1 string and fits the Asian hand as Shwon (maybe that is the town of origin?)
