With an upgraded design for modern players, Fender’s new eight-string Mando-Strat 8 has the unmistakably chiming ring of a traditional mandolin and the charmingly distinctive design style of Fender’s four-string electric mandolins of the 1950s and ’60s.
Features include eight strings arranged in four courses, a solid alder body, 13.78” scale length, maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and Fender Villager™ headstock, 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, specially designed pickup with knurled chrome “flat-top” volume and tone controls, three-ply tortoiseshell pickguard, vintage-style adjustable bridge with two threaded steel saddles, vintage-style tuners with aged white buttons, and elegant Three-color Sunburst gloss finish.
