Ethos Guitars (Paul Hancox)
Here's the prototype of the "Manistra" mandolin from Paul, a noted custom guitar builder in the UK. With its through-body 3-piece neck, mahogany wings, and flame maple top, the Manistra reminds me of Jonathan Mann's excellent e-mandos. Custom bridge and pickups, radiused rosewood fretboard, 3-way selector switch. For more information, check out the Web site, send or call +44 (0) 7910 761982.
