    Default help identify a 5-string e-mando?

    Hey all,

    A family friend just picked up this 5 string electric mandolin. They were apparently told it was a "Fender HM" but that is obviously not correct. Anyone have any idea who made this?

    Yep, that's Mark Hencel ... where was it picked up?

    I got hit up for info via text by a distant connection - like 'a close family friend whose uncle bought it from someone they described as a friend' kind of thing - I have asked for more information about the transaction, where it was bought, etc......

    A Mark Hencel for sure. Tried to get one from Emando but no response from the maker to figure out specs. Ordered a Schwab 5 instead and very excited for it! But MH does beautiful work! Let us know how it plays and sounds!
