Rono
Rono baritone black solidbody 5-string by Ron Oats. $2,200. REDUCED from $2,500.
Here's a brand 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.
     This one is a soildbody instrument finished in black 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. The neck has a double-action truss rod. 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 more photos, or for more information. $2,400 plus shipping. 48-hour approval period.
