    Mandy Marie finally got her pink and sparkly Bari prototype from ace Nashville builder Eugene Moles.
    They have been designing this for the last 5 years and Eugene came up with a way of making a Masonite clad pine body a la Danelectro, there's some top secret 'stuff' going on in there to get it to work but it sounds killer !
    Tuned B to B this thing growls !

    It's a left handed bridge, pushing the pick up closer to the big old strings at the bridge really makes it 'twang' and 'pop' and actually evens out the tone across all six strings.

    Wow, that is cooler than things that are too cool for school. Very nice! Would be great if the top secret clearance lifts and there were build pics that could be shared. :cool:

    At the very least, some demo action is required. ;)

    Very nice. Left handed bridge gives it a little something to talk about.

    That is seriously amazing. It has such a vintage retro look to it. To me it screams country n western. I couldn't have waited 5 years. What's the color?

    Eugene is a busy builder (and awesome picker) and I think the actual construction took a lot of figuring out to form the Masonite and the blocks to hold it together.
    Mandy Marie was happy to wait, the colour is a bright pink but has been aged and looks gorgeous, it's going to get a LOT of use !!

    I've always thought the reverse slant would make real good sense on any tele, but yeah on a bari that is awesome

    Bee-utiful!

    Wow, a Dano-construction Tele body would be fantastic. Somebody needs to make that a regular production item...!
