Michigan luthier Bruce Herron has been making fun,
affordable electric Blue Star Mandoblasters for
as long as I can remember, and that's quite a track
record. You may have seen Blue Stars in the hands
of pro players like Otis Taylor, Bucky Baxter (with
Bob Dylan), or Don Herron of BR5-49.
This 5-string Mandoblaster (serial number 702) features
a silver "psycho-burst" phenolic finish, a single-coil
lipstick-tube pickup, 2-piece black/pearloid pickguard,
volume and tone controls, tuneable bridge with fully
adjustable saddles, 14" scale length, 1-3/8" nut
width, ebony fretboard with standard mandolin fretwire,
and 1-piece maple neck.
Slight wear but excellent condition overall. Gig bag included,
or upgrade to a custom gig bag or hardshell case. See
for more information. $550 plus shipping.
