    Hath I a few questions? Yea, forsooth.

    Where are the pickups?

    Where is the jack located?

    Can it be strung normally? (Looks like it.)

    Isn't that a regular compensated bridge sitting in an artistic setting?

    Is $2800 truly "priced to sell quickly?"

    Oh, yes - who is Hathaway?

    It's definitely not Paul Hathway. The CL seller suggested that the luthier was from Michigan and had worked at Gibson.

    Better photos would answer some of Steve's questions.

    I know I came across photos of another e-mando with that funky braiding of strings btwn. bridge and tailpiece but I don't recall the builder's name. Said photos may even be on Emando.com somewhere.

    Forgot about this. Didn't generate much interest. Wonder why. It's pretty cool, if odd. Perhaps some images will help.
