With the huge success of our 8-string instruments over the past few years, we thought a more traditional body style would be a welcome addition to the MRG Studio line. Many have been asking for an electric Mando like this, so the simple progression was to borrow from our very popular guitar "The Cosey", which is a 6 string guitar based on a mandolin body.
Semi-hollow (tone-chambered) body gives this model more depth and resonance. What we end up with is a fantastic new 23" scale Octave Mando!
