This is a mandolin I made in my Folk Music & Acoustics course while attending the Arkansas School For Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts. I made it entirely from scratch without plans. I also added a single coil pickup, volume knob & cable jack to make it acoustic electric. In this photo, the E string is missing, because I tend to break it rather often. I am rather proud of this piece, although I plan on building another to improve on my current design.
