The 12-string market just got a little brighter: we have a 1997 12-string from Linda Manzer in Koa and Sitka Spruce! The 25 5/8" scale has easy playability and great intonation across the numerous string gauges in play here, and the added comforts of a Manzer Wedge and Venetian Cutaway make this instrument further improve that playability.

The voice is excellently balanced, and responds well to both a gentle and robust attack. Well played-in and opened up, this Manzer 12-String also comes with a B-Band UST pickup which faithfully translates all the Koa-and-Sitka colorfulness to whatever amp you'd like. Across the fretboard you'll find on of Linda's rare Phoenix-and-Chinese-Dragon inlays which, with the simpler Ebony bindings elsewhere, acts as a gorgeous centerpiece to this already attractive display of lutherie at its finest.

1997 Manzer 12 String -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"The dry Koa tone works well for a 12-string, and the voice on this Manzer definitely benefits from that punchiness and even response. I also like the look of the hollowed out headstock; a great way to keep the weight down. Overall, this guitar is really easy to play." - Paul Heumiller

"I really enjoyed playing this 12-string. It has just the right amount of jangle that 12-strings are known for, as well as packing a nice punch with its midrange frequencies. " - Al Petteway
