Manuel & Patterson / Old Time Special / 2009 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Built in their Abita Spring Guitar Company workshop in Louisiana, almost all Manuel & Patterson guitars made are custom orders and are pre sold. So this is a rare chance to buy one of their guitars without going on a 2 year waiting list. This example is an Old Time Special 12 fret 000. It features a Sitka Spruce top with scalloped Adirondack braces, solid Honduran Mahogany back and sides, a one piece Mahogany neck, with Ebony fingerboard. The Madagascar Rosewood headstock has a beautiful torch vine inlay. The guitar has a killer tone, very powerful, articulate and well-balanced. It’s in excellent condition, plays like a dream, and comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
