I've been searching around recently for a Rickenbacker 5002v58 Mandolin with almost no luck. I'm not looking for a specific color, just anything. I know the site hasn't shown any new ones being shipped in quite a while. I was hoping one of you forum members might have a lead on a dealer or private seller that has a new or used on in stock and for sale. I've been considering selling another Ric guitar and would like to get one of these mandolins. (I kinda have a promise to myselft that I won't get rid of a Ric unless I replace it with at least 1 new Ric.) Also, what is the going rate for a used or new one? I know the list price went up over $2K recently, but what are they selling for. So, if anyone has a lead, please let me know.

There have been two for sale from private sellers in the last month, in the $1300.00 range. They went pretty quickly, never made it to Ebay. I've been told twice in the past by Ben that there were plans to build a batch around mid-2008. Hopefully these plans haven't changed. Olivia's has one on Ebay right now (a '96 that they say is a salesman's prototype...) for a pretty stiff price. I'd order one from your fave dealer if I was you. That's the best way to get one.

That's right.
Your best weapon in eventually obtaining one is a placed order with your favorite Ric Dealer.

"If you order them, they will come."
