Manzer Metheny Signature Comes To CR Guitars
CR Guitars is honored to be chosen as the USA dealer for the Manzer-Metheny Signature 6 Limited Edition model guitar. These guitars reach to the very depths of our concept of hand selected. Out of the limited stock of 30 guitars, Linda Manzer will personally chose special examples specifically for CR Guitars. We've said it before but it bears repeating - what a great time to be alive!
The Metheny-Manzer Signature 6 is a limited edition guitar commemorating the 25 year association between 17 time Grammy winning jazz guitarist Pat Metheny and Canadian luthier Linda Manzer. Says Metheny, “Linda has crafted almost 20 instruments for me over these years, and each one has opened a new set of sonic possibilities for me to explore. She has become one of my most important collaborators.”
The guitar is modeled after the original “Linda 6,” a special custom designed guitar originally crafted for Pat Metheny in 1982. Says Metheny, “The first guitar Linda made for me a was a beautiful steel 6-string. I was immediately hooked. It’s debut appearance on a recording was on the track ‘Lonely Woman’ on the ECM album “Rejoicing”. That tune just sparkles because of that instrument. She made me that one guitar, which I totally fell in love with and have used almost every night ever since.”
Each limited edition guitar comes numbered and signed by Pat Metheny and Linda Manzer along with a signed certificate. Also included is a deluxe handmade Calton case as well as a signed and numbered photo book documenting the creation of this instrument.
