View Full Version : Black EM-200

In reference materials (emando.com, Alan Bond's Electric Mandolin museum), I've seen pictures of a black EM-200 with gold hardware, almost like an emando version of the Les Paul Black Beauty. Yet any EM-200 I've ever seen for sale (albeit less than 15 to date), they are always the sunburst. Was the black one a custom and the same photo is all of one mando? Or just a very limited number of them were ever made, perhaps only a year or two?

That's funny--all 4 or 5 that I've seen for sale have been black....

I've seen pictures of a red one a long time ago on Elderly. Black wouldn't be out of the question.

I have a photo of a black one at emando.com ... it was from a dealer in Australia. I think the one Brian Setzer owned was also black. Those are the only 2 black ones I'm aware of.
