   This instrument will fit inside a typical airline cabin baggage.  

The illustration shows the instrument inside a 55 x 40cms rectangle.... the maximum regulation size for Ryanair cabin baggage....

   Hey Dave, the mando got here this afternoon and I havenít put it down yet. Great little player, surprisingly loud for its size. I really like the neck as it feels very similar to my main mando.

   I couldnít have asked for more. 

   Thank you very much regards Daniel (Holl)
