The extended-range GME-5 is like having a mandolin and a mandola in one instrument. The added low C string allows you to play more complex chord voicings and your solo expeditions can take on more range and complexity. The solid alder body is equipped with a humbucker pickup (for lots of grunt with no feedback), a cast metal bridge with individual string adjustment for height and compensation, volume and tone controls, a multi-layer pickguard and a vintage cream gloss finish. The slim maple neck with integral fretboard has traditional black dot fret markers and is radiused for maximum playing ease. Includes padded gig bag. Available as left-handed model.
