Metheny-Manzer Signature 6
In 1982, luthier legend and friend of mine, Linda Manzer, created a custom guitar for guitar legend, Pat Metheny, named the Linda 6. She and Pat are currently working on a project to create faithful replicas of this guitar to be called the Metheny-Manzer Signature 6. These guitars have unique features such as the Manzer Wedge, a Diamond side dot on the seventh fret, and a thumb rest/neck groove. Each instrument costs $32,000 and comes in a special, handmade Calton case. Purchasers will receive a photo-book of the creation of their instrument, plus a certificate of authenticy. Only 30 will be made and many peope have already begun to purchase this guitar (including Paul Simon), so if you want one, order quickly. To purchase or recieve information, visit the project's website. These guitars are well worth their price and I reeeaally want one, but they're quite a bit over my budget.
