Jonathan Mann knows how to put together unique instruments, and this Manndolins OSEM5 “Less Paul Custom” mandolin is no exception. It is one of the most fun/interesting instruments to come through the store. Tuned like a regular mandolin, only an octave lower, an open G chord sounds spectacular with the high B on top. This instrument has a very broad register, and can occupy a wide sonic spectrum. Two mini humbuckers, 3 way switch, and a coil tap provide tones capable of fast chicken pickin’, crunchy power chords, or psychedelic, sustained filled melodies. Plus… THE KNOBS GO TO 11! A thin Vintage Amber waterbased lacquer is expertly applied, and the satin finish on the three-piece neck is very smooth and comfortable. It plays extremely well, is in excellent condition, and comes with a custom Tweed G&G Case.
