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.
