New to the Mando Hangout.  Thought I'd share my first mandolin build.  It is a semi-hollow electric mandolin made from pallet wood.  I recently built an electric banjo from pallets and after completing it my wife requested a mandolin.    So, here it is.  I did use a rosewood peghead overlay and a small bit of walnut on the neck.  The rest is wood recycled from pallets, mostly red or white oak I believe.  I'm not much of a mandolin player but I was pleased with how it turned out.  big

It's a beauty. S'pose we could get a listen?

Thanks! I will record an mp3 this weekend and post it.

Is that a lipstick p/u I see? I am presently contemplating rigging one up on my acoustic F. This p/u seems to be the thinnest bar type available.
