Two Instruments from Corrado Giacomel
Corrado Giacomel of Genova, Italy makes mandolins of exceptional quality
Here is an example of his J-5 mandolin and an example of his J-5 Mandola
The "Mandola" is actually an octave mandolin with a 20" scale length
I decided to convert the "Mandola" to a 5 string tenor guitar.
It's tuned from the bottom up -  F   C   G   D   A
I've added pictures of it in it's current modified form.
