|Antoria acoustic / Andy Farrell electric mandolins|
|Antoria Acoustic Mandolin converted to left hand.|
only acoustic mandolin we used on the recordings, so if if it sounds like an acoustic, it'll be the Antoria (and if it sounds like an electric, it's the Andy Farrell, also pictured, above). I've had it since about 1990 I guess, and new, I think it was about £100 UK. At the time I didn't seem to be able to get hold of a left hander so I bought it and had it converted. I think it records well. The volume pot is redundant, a remnant from my dismal attempt to electrify it.
