This is a lovely Chris Eccleshall electric mandolin for sale. I believe it was made in 1992, certainly judging by the serial number which is: 872 92

Chris made mandolins and guitars for Rory Gallacher, Pete Townshend and many more and his workmanship is just amazing.

Condition is really good with only a couple of marks above the bridge which can be seen in the photos (please see link for loads of photos).

Frets are perfect and given general condition and lack of fret wear the mandolin can't have been played a lot during its lifetime. I bought it from the original owner.

Body is solid mahogany construction with a Chris Eccleshall hand wound pickup. Single volume and tone.  Rosewood fingerboard.

It has strap buttons and balances extremely well on a strap; will include a decent leather strap. 
The neck is a lovely V shape, incredibly comfortable and plays effortlessly.  Nut width is a standard 30mm.

 Tuners work perfectly.

Just been fitted with a new set of Daddario EJ67 strings (11-39) and it really rings beautifully. Frets have also been polished. It looks like it has abalone fret markers but I could be wrong.

It has a fully adjustable tunomatic style bridge. Height is adjustable via two allen key bolts on either end of the bridge and saddles are adjusted via screws to the rear of the bridge.

Case is home-made and appears to have a solid pine frame with good solid ply top and base. Pretty bullet-proof Hinges and latches work perfectly and the mandolin is really tight inside the case, virtually no movement. The case was tailor made for this mandolin.

I am currently looking for a 4 string electric bass so may consider a swap or part ex if anyone has one that is excess to requirements.  May consider other trade options.

Happy to ship but also very happy for anyone to come and try it out.  In Cambridgeshire.

Please ask any questions and if you need more detailed photos happy to do that too.

Asking £475 for a cash sale
