If you're a guitarist who wants to play mandolin but can't get a handle on the tuning, then the Goldtone F-6 is for you. Six strings with tuning like a guitar (an octave up). It's immediately familiar to guitarists.
This six-string mando-guitars are built on a larger artist- (or F-style) mandola body. The F-6 mandolin guitar's larger air chamber offers extended low-end response and the new, wider slim-line neck and longer scale provide added room for fretting those first-position chords. The fretboard is radiused for comfort and the ebony bridge contains a built-in pickup for easy plugged-in picking.
