Comments This is a lovely guitar by Linda Manzer, built in 1980 in Toronto. It’s been played – as it should be! – and is in good shape. It speaks very well with clear, articulated trebles and a full yet not overwhelming bass. The inlay is very well executed, and all around this is a wonderful instrument.
