Thread: Mandolinetto Makers?

  1. #1

    Default Mandolinetto Makers?

    Are there any luthiers that still build the mandolinetto? I did a google search of the mandolin cafe and the internet at large and came up short on both accounts.

    Try Devon MacRae at http://www.macraeguitars.com/ or on Facebook. I checked with them about a year ago on a very reasonably priced Mandolinetto.

    Unfortunately that website goes to nowhere and I am not having luck finding them on fb.

    Champlin Guitar. I know nothing about the maker but they are in the Builder's Database.

    Note: As I said I don't know this builder but we apparently have some friends in common
