Description

One of those rare guitars which looks as good as it sounds, this 2008 Manzer, adorned with Canadian animals inlaid across the fretboard and Manzer's trademark wood-and-Abalone rosette, makes the business of making music one that is as pleasing to the ear as it is to the eye. For the back and sides, Linda used some of the finest Indian Rosewood we've ever seen, bent into her tradmarked Manzer Wedge shape for playing comfort, and paired it with a German Spruce top that has striking contrasts of color across its medullary rays.

As you'd expect, the resulting voice is equally at home with a delicate attack or played with gusto, offering a well-balanced tone in all applications that is chock full of delightful overtones and articulate warmth. The trebles have an extra dose of clarity to them as well, but don't overwhelm the other registers, instead providing an invigorating sparkle to the voice. After Manzer built the original Endangered Animals Manzer (which resides in the Canadian Museum of Civilization), she discovered a great fondness for this style of inlay, and has since made a select handful of guitars whose fretboards glitter with various animals, not all on the endangered list, of the Canadian wilderness.

Here, you can see a Dawson caribou, racoon, bears, and even an eastern cougar. Lastly, when you'd like to show off these handsome assemblages of Paua, Abalone, and Copper, you can do so at your next gig, utilizing the included Fishman Thinline undersaddle pickup for reliable amplification, and there's an included Calton Flight Case to make sure it survives the trip.

Linda's guitars are always two things for me: gorgeous, and expressive. This Manzer fits the bill handsomely; the setup is glass-smooth with perfect low action.
 
I love Linda Manzer's work and this one is extra special because of the animal inlays. I think it would be a great recording guitar because the bass response is somewhat subdued in favor of sparkling mids and highs. It's also a very comfortable guitar to play.
