Hey I am Brandon. I just bought a Mansfield model MD245CE as well. I also cannot find any info on them. I paid $170 canadian for the guitar new strings and the case. I seemed like a pretty good deal and the guitar has a nice sound. If you find any info please let me know

Your MD245 is a probably a recent Mansfield model.

It is very difficult to get accurate information about mansfield guitars.
I have been searching about Mansfield guitars origin for quite a while and I recently found very interesting information about this guitar brand. Mansfield was a canadian musical instrument distributor (you will note that most Mansfield owners are in Canada). The Mansfield guitars are OEM made from different musical instruments manufacturers. Recently purchased Mansfield guitars have no special interest, but in the 1970's , the Mansfield guitars were builded by Hoshino Gakki (Japan), the Ibanez makers. If you have a 1970's Mansfield, chances are that it an Ibanez with a Mansfield name on it. The Ibanez vintage guitars are highly wanted.
You can search Ibanez vintage collector websites for more information about the Ibanez story and some information about mansfield. There is no doubt that those guitars are meant to become collector's items because they are apparently the same guitars as the Ibanez vintage 1970s, except for the brand. I will try to start a Mansfield Guitars post in one of the Ibanez collector's website in order to have their historical value recognized, and maybe create a database of the Hoshino made Mansfield models. Meanwhile, take very good care of your old Mansfield guitars!!!
I have a Mansfield FJH4 (Gibson Hummingbird copy Ibanez made)
I am posting this message on all the Mansfield Guitar discussions at guitarsite.com hoping it will answer some of the questions about this brand.
