Roman Veillette Guitars Information
Custom Guitars By Ed Roman & Joe Veillette
These guitars are the result of a 35 year association between Ed Roman & Joe Veillette
String Mondo' Lin
Seldom has such a new & revolutionary extremely useful
instrument been developed.
This wonderful mandolin guitar has been designed so that anyone who plays guitar
can now play a mandolin on steroids..
Standard mandolins only have 8 strings and they are hard to learn to play. This
instrument will sound like 2 mandolins at once and play exactly like a guitar.
Currently There is a problem making these fast enough so get in line with
people like Eddie Van Halen, Neil Schon & Keith Urban.
These come with a Seymour Duncan Pickup and the proprietary black saddle
You can order neck thru body or bolt on versions. We no
longer offer this in set neck because some of the high end goes away. It
gets stopped from reaching the electronics by the glue in the neck joint.
Now also available in an acoustic version.
The Mondo' Lin is tuned to D
above standard E. Fitted with all
unison strings (as opposed to the
mixed unisons and octaves of regular
12-strings), this guitar overlaps
with a standard mandolin's range,
adding an extra fourth below the
mando's low-G string. It's important
to note, however, that any guitarist
can play this instrument without
having to learn a new tuning.
This instrument is extremely useful
on rhythm tracks !!!
This also makes a great instrument
to do solo's on !!!!
