Nice work Mike! I'm currently half way through building an electric mandolin but I've made so many mistakes I wonder if I'll ever get there :?

Keep on going Fiddler. I built a through neck solid electric mandolin years ago, just to test and work out what angles and techniques to build a through neck bass.

How does it sound? I have never built an musical instrument, I think it will sound horrible if I ever make one... :)
