    Hi Guys,
    Hope that you’re all keeping well and safe. The chambered body electric mandolin is now complete and here’s the final video. There are some nice photos and a demo to show how it all works.
    Cheers Gary.

    What an amazing range of tones you have included in this beautiful instrument, Gary. Thanks again for posting the video.

    Love that it's based on the early Kay, and yet earlier Stromberg-Voisenet, body outline ... with a cutaway!!

    Interesting that you should say that Ed. I started using a similar shape to the emando when I built an acoustic mandocello back in 2008 and the shape morphed into what you see with my emandos. I thought it was totally original and then a I stumbled across someone playing a Kay on YouTube and thought my design had been ripped-off! And then I saw Rick Turner’s model T!
    D’oh! “Nothing new under the sun” as they say!
    Cheers Gary
