Hi All, I'm normally to be found on the guitar building part of this site but I'm making a mandola as a favour. It's a bit of fun so I'm working from my own plans (and imagination).
2 questions:
Am I right to do 34mm at nut and 44 at 12th fret?
Please could someone take the time to give me string spacings at the nut? I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.

I havent used any plans and I can give you my dimensions , But that doesnt mean they are exactly correct . My suggestion would be contact Joe Mendel on here . He is The Mandola Guy ! Thats who I ask LOL

By the way , post pics as you go . I would love to see your work .
