Manzer Guitars / Medusa / 2010 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
The most advanced Linda Manzer guitar ever created. Designed by Linda & Henrik Andersen. The guitar has 52 strings total arranged in 3 harps & 3 guitar necks.
Upper neck is a fretless soprano guitar. Middle neck (fanfretted) is a 8 string guitar.
Lower neck is original design: With scalloped fingerboard. Its basically a normal 6 string
guitar but the lower E-string is replaced with 4 thin ”chikore” strings on a buzz-saddle to
Produce a sitar sound.
The two harps on the ”wings” can easily be played – the one above the 3 sound holes can be strummed. Notice that the guitar has the wedge design (invented by Linda) meaning the guitar is wider in the bottom of the soundbox to make it more comfortable. Also there is a beautifull detail with the ergonomic carving – so the arm wont rest on a sharp angle.
It means that its nice and easy to play.
X-stra : Linda has created a bracket so the guitar can be mounted on a stand.
Inside is mounted a costum made stereo pickup from danish company REMIC
In the end there are 2 XLR outs – needs phantompower. Linda created a door to enter the guitar – naturally it also comes with the guitar. As the picture shows - my technician created a new door with the 2 XLR inserts. The guitar comes with a costumized flightcase.
