Here's a fantastic new Rono electric 5-string baritone mandolin by Ron Oats of
Boulder, Colorado. With a scale length of 18.5 inches, it's designed for GDAEB tuning, like an octave mandolin with a high B string.
It features a
seductive flame maple top on a chambered mahogany body, finished in a spectacular
sunburst under hand-rubbed nitrocellulose lacquer.
A pair of
mini-humbuckers are voiced especially for baritone
mandolin, and are controlled by chrome knobs and a 3-way switch. Mahogany
neck with double-action truss rod. Ebony tailpiece, headplate and
fretboard. Gotoh tuners;
Tune-o-Matic style bridge. All metal parts are chrome plated.
Remarkable tone and playability match its exquisite looks.
Hardshell case included.
There aren't many choices out there for players wanting
to jump on the baritone bandwagon, but here's a rare opportunity to own one from the pioneer who popularized the concept in our times. See
