Electric Guitars/Mann Electric Guitar --Les Paul Style

Mann was the name that Ibanez started building under when they were being sued by gibson and fender for making replica's of the top guitars, The authorities were seizing the Japanese shipments and sawing the headstocks off of guitars by the boat load. Ibanez did this to protect themselves from the lawsuit and preserve the main company name. When they lost the lawsuit Mann was forced to shut down and the inventory was confiscated and destroyed.  Because of this the Mann versions Are very rare and hard to come by, Especially with a set neck! Its a solid neck that's one piece, (not a laminated fretboard). With brass fret markers. I have personally seen these rare pieces go for up to $2,500 to avid collectors at auction lately. They are rare indeed and hard to find one In good condition with the case intact as well.
