This is a good-playing, solidly built 5-course fan-fret resonator mandolin. Scale lengths e=13.75" to C=14.5" - a mild splay. Quality parts where it counts: Beard cone and biscuit, Allen tailpiece, K&K resonator pickup, quality 12-string tuners with one cut off on each side. Neck is maple, with a truss rod. The rest of the instrument is made of Baltic birch plywood.
The cone rests on a platform on stationary bolts, so cone height (and hence action) is adjustable if you disassemble things a bit. Sound port hole, closable with a big rubber stopper. Quite loud acoustically; and freakishly loud when plugged in.
No case, but you might find a triple tennis racket bag that works.

I'm a decent amateur luthier, so this not a pro-grade instrument. But it's well built and can be set up to your preferences.
Seeking to recover cost of parts. Asking $500 which will include CONUS shipping. Standard trial period - upon return I'll refund purchase price less actual outbound shipping. Donation to Cafe.
