Ola Soderstrom
Mr. Soderstrom builds mandolin-family instruments in Sweden. This solidbody instrument has a scale length of 53 cm (20.9 inches), so it's probably more of an octave mandolin than a standard mandolin. Built from mahogany, rosewood, and ebony, it sports Schaller tuners and a Steve Ryder humbucker as well as a Highlander IP1 pickup. For more information, contact Ola by e-mail or visit his Web site.
