Thread: Opus mandolin

  1. #1

    Default Opus mandolin

    I designed and made this over a year ago and to date, I have not been able to find anyone to test it and my playing is terrible. I was advised to go with 4 strings because it is an electric (but has useable acoustic output being hollow). The single coil was custom made. Hopefully I get to hear it one day.

    Just play a scale. We’d love to hear the tone.
    Play it like you mean it.

    I'm curious how much do your mandolins sell for roughly? And how far are you from Edenvale? I come through there every so often, and I'll be there early next year.

    I'm about half and hour from Edenvale. I do not make many but I guess they would start at $2500- The original Broadway would be around $4000- and the Broadway I am working on now about $2500- plus shipping. Pop around when you are here.

    Ok cool! I'll PM you closer to the time I'll be there to get your WhatsApp details. I'd love to do some demo vids on them

    I prefer eight strings on my electrics.
