Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

May 24, 2011 | On the way; Custom Jonathan Mann Baritone 5-string

BariEmandoHdstk.jpg BariEmandoHdstk2.jpg

BariEmando_face2.jpgHeading for the JazzMando studio, a delicious 5-string electric bari-emando EM-5B (tuned GDAEB low to high) lovingly packed and on its way Tennessee emando specialist, Jonathan Mann. It's our second instrument from the in-demand craftsman, and what we anticipate, a wonderful new voice. The baritone register offers some dynamic harmonic register opportunities for jazz.

We look forward to an official review a few weeks after its arrival, but below are some of the photos to get us excited. Note custom bling upgrades, gold hardware, block inlay, and signature headstock truss rod cover.
