Eastwood Guitars Warren Ellis Mandostang - Vintage Cream - Signature Model Electric Mandolin - NEW!
Eastwood Guitars Warren Ellis Signature Mandostang
4-string electric Mandolin based on the “Mandocaster”
Unique collaboration between Eastwood and Warren Ellis
For years, Eastwood's Mandocaster has been one of the top selling electric mandolins in the world. While the Mandocaster features the typical 8-string configuration (4 sets of double strings), the Mandostang is built with just 4 single strings like the old vintage Fender electric mandolins. The Mandostang signature model 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).
Obviously if you play Tenor guitar, Mandolin, Violin or Viola, Mandola – Any of those other instruments that aren’t your standard electric guitar you have probably found that they aren’t all that common. 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!
