This is a one-of-a-kind set of wood selections, with a walnut neck, sides, and tailpiece, and a purpleheart back. The top is made of spruce, and the string protection pieces inlaid in the headstock are also purpleheart (see picture).

The 4-string model has the same dimensions as our 3-string models, just with an extra string on the top to double the high string (melody string). This gives the instrument a nice mandolin quality and richness that we're particularly fond of.

Crafted by hand in Inglewood (Nashville urbanburb) by East Nashville Instrument Co.

You can play this one tuned to a standard DAD or GDG, but I prefer to try mine out tuned to the same intervals as a standard guitar (GBE).  Like a micro-guitar.  This approach provides me a fun little practice instrument, and as many guitarists know, sometimes it just takes that little extra change to reignite your playing creativity.  So go for it!

Again: This piece is in development still, and will be available around the end of June '19. If you'd like to purchase, please email and let us know!
