A rare and unusual instrument, this N. Turturro Turnover is simultaneously a mandolin and a ukulele. It has mahogany body with round soundholes on both sides. The two-sided mahogany neck has two rosewood fingerboards. This instrument needs some work to get back into playing shape (sold AS-IS, see Details section below), but overall it’s in very good+ condition. More details...
