Quotes from Paul Hathway's website.......

http://www.paulhathway.com/mandolins/

"All my instruments are made with the practical musician in mind, using the best quality wood, never laminates or plywood. Most instruments have mahogany neck, back and sides, these are then stained to a dark wood finish. Soundboards are spruce or redwood cedar and occasionally mahogany. Fingerboards, headstock, and bridges are made of rosewood. All machine heads are best quality enclosed type and are made by Ghoto.

Model 1 Plain this model and has no edge banding to the body, which gives the look of a traditional folk instrument. ( Model M-1 OM-1 B-1 etc. )

M-1 Mandolin - Scale Length 360mm. String Gauges used .040w .026w .014p .011p
The body size of these instruments is width 240mm. length 300mm. depth 60mm.
The strings are tuned G D A E, the same pitch and tuning as the violin, although some musicians tune to G D A D.

Originally most mandolins were of the Neapolitan style, with rounded back. Most players prefer a flat back, which makes the instrument easier to hold and play. My mandolins are all made with a flat back, and have a wider fingerboard than the Neapolitan instruments."
Condition
The Mandolin is in smart condition....only really one small, slightly noticeable knock on the back edge. I have made a small adjustment to the bridge, adding a thin hardwood veneer fillet to the underside to improve the seating, and playing action.
Action, strings & cases
As mentioned above I have made a small bridge adjustment to set-up with correct 12th. fret action between 1.5mm & 2mm.

Existing strings appear to be ultra-light, probably about 9-34 gauge, rather than the maker's recommendation for Medium 11-40 strings. but will leave it as strung for the buyer to fit their preferred choice of strings.

The substantial, but oversize, "Gear4Music" hard case, with keys, shown in photos is included.
