Here are some photos of the Emmons guitars that I have in my collection now. I just recently bought the Barber Mandrell guitar, the other one I acquired from Lynn Stafford about two years ago now.

Frank Rains can't post photos from his computer so he wanted me to post these photos of his 2 Emmons PPs.
We did a complete restore on both of them. Frank is a firm believer that "black" sounds better.

I purchased the guitar from the original owner. It has the original case also and it looks nearly new. I would like to know the year it was made if anyone can help me with that. It has great tone and plays very smoothly.

She has been rode hard and put away wet more than a few times but still plays and sounds amazing. She's on her way to Mike Cass for a face lift and a overhaul.

1974 brown badge, wide pedal fatback. #1925. As delivered from the factory, totally original and unmolested. Barely played. Long KL's in anodized Black..never seen that before, but that is how the guitar came from the factory.

Will post for sale soon.
