GUEST,J Guitar bodied instuments: any makes? (21) RE: Guitar bodied instuments: any makes? 25 Sep 05

Have seen and played archtops converted to mandocello by adding tuning keys, new nut and bridge. Old Harmonys seem to make the most cost effective conversions. Played a tipple once which is a guitar shaped 10 string(5 courses) instrument from South America. It's comparable in pitch to a mandolin, but tuned like a uke. Michael Kelly(made in Korea and China) has mandolas and octave mandolins made in the shape of the F style mandolins popular in bluegrass, only larger. Haven't played one, but there's a ton of commentary on regarding them.
