Touchstone Octave Mandola
Often described as an Octave mandolin, but that raises confusion when compared with a bouzouki. Normally tuned GDAE, this Mandola is based on our arch top body shape. The spruce top, combined with a larger soundhole and a shallower body, produces a lively bright sound, particularly useful for tunes and anywhere it needs to stand out amongst other instruments.
Sapele back and sides, Spruce top, Honduras Mahogany neck, Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, chrome plated Gotoh tuners, Rosewood bindings, black and white purfling lines on front.
