Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

May 6, 2015 | Just when you thought it safe to go back into the water. Shark Mandolin!

Thanks to our friends at Mandolin Cafe for bringing this to our attention. From Germany, Frank-Michael Weber Guitar's electric mandolin, the "Mando-Sharc." He has fashioned this intriguing design with stereo outs (much like the Phoenix Jazz) with active humbucker and a passive Shadow bridge piezo pickup.


Description: "Our new Mando-Sharc mandolin can be delivered with an acrylic body soon. The body of this first model however is made of Padouk with a selected japanese walnut top. The through-neck of maple and padouk has a 350 mm scale, the ebony fretboard has 23 frets and Shark inlays. 8 standard strings are fixed at the headplate and the ballends fit into the tuners being organised into a lower and an upper section. 4 strings run through the body to reach the lower tuner section."
