The Manodcaster is an electric mandolin with a  13.78" scale length. Both 4 and 8 string neck templates are included. You can build either solid body or a chambered body with an f-hole (all included).


The Mandocaster is a bit of an oddball model and therefore hardware is not as commonly available for it as its 6 string big brothers.  Here are some tips:

Pickup: You could use a a standard 6 string pickup and just use the 4 middle poles, but the templates are routed for a 4 string pickup available from

Bridge: The templates are drilled for a sample 4 string bridge commonly available on eBay and other online resources.  These bridges vary widely so be sure to test the hole pattern and intonation placement carefully before drilling!

Neck Plate: a 4 hole pattern is drilled in case you want to create your own neck plate.  You can also choose to drill a different hole pattern and use mounting ferrules instead of a neck plate.


1/2" MDF with engraved center lines and reference markings.

Requires body blank minimum 13.5" x 11" (34cm x 28)
Requires neck blank minimum 19" x 3.5" (48cm x 9)
