NOTE: Most of Manouk’s stock guitars are in bad shape. They generally have necks that need to be reset, horrible original Kolb tuners, original finish crazing, bridges coming unglued. He also made several later models with Bolivian rosewood which are nothing like the Brazilian rosewood on this guitar. So, you may find one for cheaper, but it could be a lemon. This one has been fully checked out and all the original issues have been fixed and it’s in near mint condition.
