Eastwood Guitars Warren Ellis Mandocello - LEFTY
Solidbody Electric Mandocello
Perfect for touring and studio musicians!
The Warren Ellis signature series has now been expanded to include the outrageously cool, Warren Ellis Mandocello. This solid body electric Mandocello from Eastwood Guitars is one of many unique instruments developed in collaboration between multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis and Eastwood Guitars. Ellis, primarily a violinist known for playing with The Dirty Three, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Grinderman and his film scoring gigs, has a unique style of pushing musical boundaries. If you are looking to push your musical boundaries and move beyond (or work backwards from the typical 6-strings of a normal electric guitar) I think you you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the inspiration you can draw upon when you “mix shit up a bit” so to speak (pardon my French).
What is a Mandocello?
A Mandocello has eight strings in four “courses” (pairs), and it is usually tuned in fifths like a mandolin – Just a bit larger. We ship them out tuned Cc-Gg-dd-aa (low to high in pitch, octave pairs for the C and G). It can be described as being to the mandolin what the cello is to the violin. This model has a 25.5" scale. Recommended / Standard Strings: D'Addario: .062w / .032w | .040w / .020w | .024w / .024w | .016 / .016 |If you like to experiment (like we do!) many alternate tunings can be achieved by playing around with the gauges.
It goes without saying, but if you play Tenor guitar, Mandolin, Violin, Viola or Mandola – Or any other instruments that aren’t your standard electric guitar, you already know that finding a road-worthy, solidbody electric version that will function night after night is rather difficult. So having such an interesting selection of affordable choices from Eastwood and Airline guitars is a real treat - Especially for studio and touring musicians. Those of you who come from a typical 6-string guitar background might be wondering, like I did, “what the heck would I do with something like that????” Well if you have ever been in one of those spots where you just can’t seem to come up with a new idea or riff, stuck in a rut, or just plain bored of what you’re doing, these are a great way try something new! Step outside your comfort zone and be pleasantly surprised with what you come up with. You won’t regret it!
