Description

A blast from the past, with tone to spare: our 1981 Manzer has a pocketful of mojo, and it ain’t afraid to show it. Indian Rosewood back and sides, Sitka Spruce top, and easy playability come together to make this one a challenge to put down. We found she took to DADGAD exceedingly well, but standard tuning brought it home just as sweetly. It’s really a great example of a top-of-the-line workhorse for both fingerstyle and flatpicked approaches, and it’s such an easy player for a variety of applications that we don’t expect this Manzer to gather dust in its case for too long.

This is a classic Manzer from the same year that Pat Matheny‘s guitar was built. Linda's trademark clarity and precision come forth in every note. It’s a perfect recording instrument balanced everywhere on the fingerboard. This one from 1981 is wide open and gives you all it has to give, and that's priceless.
