Not a guitar, but my interpretation of what a 14.5" scale five string mandolin would look like. Koa top and back on mahogany body.

Looks great. How does it play? Mandolin is my second instrument after guitar but i never tried one of the electric 5 string ones.

Plays great. It went to a guy that plays in a Dead cover band in Cincy. I made the string spacing at the bridge a bit wide so I'm making a new bridge and narrowing the spacing from 12 to 11 mm. Humbucker has a 3 way switch then the lever switch is a common 3 way pickup selector setup.
