"Ceol Binn"

 




 

"Ceol Binn" ("Sweet Music") is a flattop mandolin designed with a guitarist in mind. It has a 375mm scale length, a wide nut and has guitar sized fretwire and comes with a Hiscox hard case. The instrument illustrated has a European spruce top and Bubinga back and sides. Here's a recording of me playing "The Maid at the Spinning Wheel" on this instrument in GDAD tuning. You can see a photo-documentary of a "Ceol Binn" being made here.
