Some day soon I too will be the proud owner of a custom 5-string electric by rising star Jonathan Mann. Inspired by Dfyngravity and his mini PRS, I've contracted with Mr. Mann for a mini PRS with a Les Paul body style.
Jon has been a real pleasure to work with and has indulged by enthusiasm, discussing many options with me, all of which were very appealing. In the end, we decided the Manndo should be jet black on the front with black dials and chrome pick-ups. The back will be stained black so that those who peek underneath can check out the grain of the wood. Maybe because of the "charred" image that evokes in my head, I've come to call my Manndo-to-be "Smokey."
Join me in watching Smokey come into existence.
