Electric “Ricky” Mandolin Tribute

  • Description
  • Comments

We have had many requests to add a new Electric Mandolin to our offerings. The Mandocaster has been a top seller for many years, now we think it is time to give a tip-of-the-hat to the unusual body shape of the vintage Ricky 5002V58 from the 1950's. It is a rare find on the vintage market, but this one will be simple and affordable. We've captured the body shape and color scheme, but we've upgraded the bridge to our Mandola style (non-covered) and upgraded the pickup to our popular Warren Ellis Single Coil Blade.
