Several years ago I took in a Gibson K1 mandocello for repair. I was intrigued by the instrument and decided to build a copy. The mandocello is among the larger instruments in the mandolin family. The body is 14 1⁄4 wide and about 3″ deep at the edges. The scale length is 24 5⁄8″ and the neck is 1 5⁄8″ wide at the nut.
Materials: Sitka Spruce, Mahogany, Walnut.
