Following on the success of our top selling Electric Mandocaster, we bring you the AIRLINE Mandola. It is to the mandolin what the viola is to the violin, tuned in fifths (C-G-D-A low-to-high), a fifth lower than a mandolin. Historically, the Mandola is the actually ancestor of the Mandolin, the name of which means simply "little mandola".

Just got my mandola in a couple of days ago. I adore it. The sound is somewhere between a mandolin and a twelve string guitar. For those with mandolin skills, your four-finger chop chord will be a big stretch, but the sound of two and three fingered chords are just astonishing enough. You want long ringing sounds on this thing. Even without reverb, the sustain is remarkable. Still trying pedals on it, but unaffected through my old Champ amp it sounds dreamlike.

My Mandola is my favourite string intrument with unparallelled sustain thanks to the double strings and an incredible humbucker pickup that registers nil feedback and can be played at full volume no matter how high I jack my overdrive and sustain pedals.
A dream to record on. Chorus effects sound marvellous through it.
