This instrument was handmade by Paul Hathway from N.London. It is brand new & virtually unplayed. It cost £655 and has a basic gig bag and 2 spare sets of custom made strings (worth £20) that Paul has made especially for him by Newtone Strings in the UK. I'm selling it as I bought a 1921 Gibson H2 Mandola a few days after buying it, so I no longer need it. Paul's instruments are fine folk instruments (Paul McCartney has one of his mandolins). It's worth checking out the Hathway website. This one is the Long Scale model (460mm scale length). Tuning is CGDA, the same as a viola. Buyer to collect & cash please.
