The Sorensen Big Dog Octave mandolin

The Sorensen Big Dog Octave mandolin uses the contemporary style of the modern archtop guitar, then adds the growl of four-courses of paired strings.  Withe a 21-3/4" scale and the same tuning (an octave lower) to mandolins, this sweet pup is great addition to the houshold.
