Eastwood Guitars debuts the new Mandocaster 12
January 10, 2014
|The new Eastwood Mandocaster 12 features a lightweight solid Alder body in a beautiful Antique Sunburst finish with a striking white pickguard. This 15½" scale guitar has a bolt-on super smooth maple neck, a rosewood fingerboard with dot markers and measures 1 7/8" at the nut. A pair of custom designed Single Coil pickups are controlled by a 3-way switch with one volume and one tone control. The fully adjustable 12 Saddle bridge allows for full intonation.
Eastwood Guitars introduces a new member to the highly successful
Eastwood Mandocaster family, the Eastwood Mandocaster 12. This 12-string
octave guitar is tuned the same as any standard guitar, E-E
, but an octave higher. It is like putting a capo on the 12th fret of your 12-string guitar, but with a longer, more manageable scale length. A perfect addition to your studio!
“Since the introduction of the 8 string Eastwood Mandocaster in 2005," said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "it’s been one of the top selling electric mandolins in the world, and our fans have been begging us for a 12-string version… we’re happy to say that it’s finally here!”
