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."

February 2, 2012 | Available: Mann SEM-5 solid body single cutaway

We like to check in on the "In-stock" instruments over at premium electric mandolin builder Jonathon Mann's website. Once in a while a real bargain pops up like this 5-string beauty for only $1650, with case:


SEM-5 solid body single cutaway. Curly maple top with vintage amber finish, curly walnut back, gold hardware, 14.7" scale, rosewood fretboard, Dimarzio Pro track and Tone zone S pickups. G&G vintage style hard case.

The Tennessee craftsman has really come of his own in a few short years, developing an international reputation with his innovative designs. With its signature neck-though body and modernized LP silhouette, this would be a good one to snag!

If you have a spare few minutes, check out his YouTube demos. If you're new to the world of electric mandolins, he does a terrific job of surveying the electronics of his line.
