|Comments||The Hammertone Mandotar is a very interesting instrument. Built in George Furlanetto’s workshop in Hamilton, Ontario, these are a cross between a solidbody electric guitar and a mandolin.
They play very well, sound great, and a guitar player doesn’t have to learn any new voicings to just start using it.
