Electric Mandolins from New Zealand - Swamp Kauri

Report about Sandy Sanderson and his instruments: http://www.nzmusician.co.nz/index.php/ps_pagename/article/pi_articleid/160

Sandy Sanderson is a patient man. I’m not just saying that because he has to teach woodwork and metalwork to secondary school kids. I say that because he has no problems waiting four whole years for wood to dry. It’s no ordinary wood mind; this is 2,500-year-old swamp kauri, from which Sandy shapes and carves unique electric instruments.


Electric mandolins made in New Zealand by Sandy Sanderson, bodies made from Swamp-Kauri, and necks stabilized by carbonfibre. Due to a motorcycle accident Sandy Sanderson cannot build or repair instruments any more. But his Homepage does contain some interesting pictures of electric mandolins and guitars and information about swamp kauri wood used for the bodies of his instruments.
