Guitar To Mandolin

guitar to mandolin

  • A mandoline (, ) is a cooking utensil used for slicing and for cutting juliennes; with proper attachments, it can make crinkle-cuts. It consists of two parallel working surfaces, one of which can be adjusted in height.

  • A musical instrument resembling a lute, having paired metal strings plucked with a plectrum. It is played with a characteristic tremolo on long sustained notes

  • a stringed instrument related to the lute, usually played with a plectrum

  • A mandolin (mandolino) is a musical instrument in the lute family (plucked, or strummed). It descends from the mandore, a soprano member of the lute family.

  • (guitarist) a musician who plays the guitar

  • The guitar is a plucked string instrument, usually played with fingers or a pick. The guitar consists of a body with a rigid neck to which the strings, generally six in number but sometimes more, are attached.

  • A stringed musical instrument with a fretted fingerboard, typically incurved sides, and six or twelve strings, played by plucking or strumming with the fingers or a plectrum

  • a stringed instrument usually having six strings; played by strumming or plucking



This was my Grandad's mandolin. He was an accomplished player but gave up after an accident at work where he lost the top of one of his fingers and was unable to play. It is decorated with "Mother of Pearl" inlays and the original ribbons and charms, it also has the original case. My Mum had this at home for many years but has now passed it on to my cousin Ian to "keep it in the family". Ian is a guitar player so it was more fitting for him to have it as we are all brass players. I don't know the age of the instrument but I guess 1890's looking at similar pictures :-)

I didn't think about taking the picture until the handover, it was a bit of a rush job so I don't think I did it justice :-(

I have seen other ones like this on ebay, not as ornate as this one, going for ?60ish.



From Castelnuovo market. Nice little restoration project...

Funnily enough, 4 or 5 years ago, my craving to get back into music made me fancy getting/making a mandolin.

But Caro got the craving as well so instead we got a guitar & bass + amps. I did buy a book on making one, but it was a US folk style thing, seriously complicated.

This on the other hand is a pretty straightforward shape and gives me a structure to work from.
