Thread: Anyone see any solidbody PRS mandolins in any stores of late?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone see any solidbody PRS mandolins in any stores of late?

    I'm looking to purchase a PRS electric solidbody mandolin w/out going through Private Stock but alas, I may find a Unicorn first, and Private Stock may be the only way to go. If anyone sees one (or Bigfoot, or the Loch Ness Monster), let me know.

    thx,
    JTSC

    I don't know that you could get one even through Private Stock, because I'm not certain any more of them exist.

    I would look at a Jonathan Mann SEM model ... looks a lot like a PRS and actually gets produced on a regular basis.

    Are you dead set on a PRS? Jon Mann makes an eMando with that body style. I looked on his website and didn't see a picture, but there was one in classifieds here on Cafe a while back. Pretty resonably priced too if I recall.

    I agree to pursue a Mann instead...

    Get one from Jon! He knows his stuff, period. I believe the very first one was built for me some years ago as I requested a copy of a PRS McCarty model....it was pretty spot on. If I wasn't such an idiot, I would still own that baby!!
