Duesenberg | MANDO 12-STRING (Pre-Loved)
For Pre-Loved Items, shipping & transaction fee may be charged separately.
The Mando is a chambered solidbody, dual pickup, 18 fret, 12-string electric guitar, featuring a short 390mm scale. She will give you mandolin like tone but is played with the ease of a standard tuning 12-string guitar.
The Mando is made from a solid piece of mahogany in which we route large sound chambers for increased resonance and semi-hollow like response. The short set maple neck sports a 12" indian rosewood fretboard.
The Mando is tuned in standard tuning, so it can be played with ease but still give you an exciting new tone.
She is equipped with a Duesenberg VintageClass singlecoil for the neck and a LittleToaster mini-humbucker for the bridge position.
This combination makes the Mando’s sound incomparably brilliant and provides it with enough charm to break open the gates of heaven in nearly any musical context or genre. The Little Toaster and SC1 pickups are precisely right for this kind of penetrating sound, which possesses bell-like clarity and brightness in every band context.
These are closer to AU$4000 new and almost impossible to find second hand! Played just like a guitar, purchased around 2015 but never ended up using. It has always sat in its case which has literally been opened 4 times.
This instrument is super cool and sounds great. 3 way pickup with volume and tone controls, and a fully adjustable 12 string bridge allowing for perfect height and intonation. Standard tuning like a guitar, but up an octave and with 12 strings.
Not a single mark or scratch on it or the case, and comes with all the original documentation and tools.
