Gold Tone GM-6 Mandolin-Guitar***6-String Mandolin Tuned An Octave Above Guitar!
Availability: In Stock
The Gold Tone GM-6 is designed for guitarists and is tuned one octave higher than a guitar. The GM-6 is a 6 string mandolin that is perfect for guitar players who want to add authentic mandolin sound to their sonic vocabulary without needing to conquer a steep learning curve. Perfect on the stage or in the studio, this mandolin is right at home playing anything from Newgrass to Folkternative...and beyond.
With its strings tuned like a guitar, this mandolin plays like a guitar but captures that great mandolin sound. The Gold Tone GM-6 has a loud and percussive tone due to its all solid wood construction and razor-thin finish. The adjustable rosewood bridge is perfectly seated atop the solid spruce top, allowing maximum projection and clarity. The vintage sunburst finish really brings out the beauty of the flame maple and the body bindings and inlays add just a touch of “bling” to the presentation.
Crafted from a carved spruce top and flamed maple back & sides, the GM-6 has a bright, loud and pleasing acoustic voice with plenty of that mandolin “chop” that bluegrass players demand. Recording guitarists that are using a “Nashville high strung” guitar to add sparkle to their tracks are going to love what the GM-6 brings to the mix.
Guitar players will appreciate that the comfortable slim maple neck is topped with a gently radiused and bound rosewood fretboard. Most of all, their beloved “E to E” string tuning is retained, meaning you'll be up and running within moments of opening the box!
