    Berkowitz F6 Concert - German Spruce & Ziricote (used)

    Out of stock

    The spruce was harvested in Germany over thirty years ago, hence some darker graining near the centre. David says he chose this piece for its exceptional acoustic qualities, and it shows. It has an incredibly rich and balanced sound with amazing separation and clarity, the typical qualities of the best Ziricote and German spruce.

    A customer put some light scratches on this beauty then I dropped a box against it!! See photos. Reduced by £2400 from £6395 to £3995 this is a bargain.

    Local legend Terry Lees was the first to play this beautiful guitar from Sergei. I've known Terry for a while and I know when its his kind of guitar within a few bars, he digs in and goes for it.

    He's playing as a write and I hear immense power an depth when he's digging in and beautiful warm sweet tones when the mood changes.

    You may think a zirizote guitar is going to be heavy (as in weight not 'that's heavy man') but in Serge's expert hands this is not the case. This is a light and responsive, wonderful guitar with fantastic playability and expression.

    Berkowitz J6 - Cedar & Indian Rosewood - Manzer Wedge

    Out of stock

    Was £5795. Dusty Corner price £4495. A few light pick marks on the top.

    I’ve have never known a sixteen and a half inch guitar feel this comfortable, the Manzer wedge (originally designed by Linda Manzer) really works. This incredible guitar has jumbo power and depth but responds delightfully to the lightest touch, an unbeatable all-rounder.

    My second from Brock Johnson and its another beauty at an ubeleivable price.

    Bocote is closely related to Ziricote and produces a similar tone. This guitar has remarkable balance with gorgeous deep/warm and well defined bass notes, full and characterful mids and clear/bell like trebles. What's not to like? A beautiful and great sounding guitar at very reasonable cost.

    My first from Tom and what a beauty! Luscious mahogany richness with fantastic clarity and sweet tone. There is complexity and character in all tonal ranges from the strong and well defined bass notes through the full mids to the clear ringing trebles.

    With Tom's adjustable action it can be adjusted in a jiffy from low action for delicate fingerstyle to higher for a pick. Versatility doesn't get any more versatile than this.

  7. Brondel A-1c - German Spruce & Malaysian Blackwood

    Brondel A-1c - German Spruce & Malaysian Blackwood

    Out of stock

    German spruce twinned with Malaysian blackwood gives some of the clearest and and most well defined individual notes I have heard. Of course put those notes together and and the result is harmonious and sweet, delicate fingerstyle, strumming and picking are all well within its competence, its excels at them all.

    There is headroom here enough to fly very high indeed and it responds excellently to the lightest touch. While this spectacular guitar is all about accuracy and articulation it comes with depth, warmth and character.

    Its hard to tell the difference tonally between these two beauties. Both are very loud with strong, well defined and warm bass notes, rich and full mids and clear/precise trebles. Its fantastic to have that wonderful oval hole sound with great definition and projection. The birdseye is gorgeous but so is the Vermont maple... I wouldn't want to have to choose between the two.

  9. Northfield Big Mon F5 Engelmann top (used)

    Northfield Big Mon F5 Engelmann top (used)

    Out of stock
    A very rare opportunity to get a used big Mon in excellent condition. Save £1000 on the new price.

    The Northfield Big Mon has been creating quite a stir. It has a big fat tone with fantastic volume and projection. Created as the ideal bluegrass hoss (or cannon if you prefer) it has great depth and richness of tone to take on pretty well any style, with great responsiveness from the lightest touch to the heaviest attack with a thick pick.

    From the Northfield website. "Our "Big Mon" Mandolin is something we created in our shop. In an effort to try and create a little more mid range and bass response, with a nice airy sound, we developed this model to have a distinct voice. Here's what we did..

    The "Big Mon" body style is just slightly different than the standard size. We've increased the width of the body, at its widest point, by 5mm. We've also adjusted the depth/width of the sides a little in a few places. Everything is in proportion to this change, so it results in a slightly larger body overall. It's not very noticeable unless you compare it directly to another standard size by lining them up back to back."

    Lynn makes very few of his A-1 model to a basic spec, no variations. I originally bought it from Lynn, he told me that he enjoys making these once in a while because he doesn’t have to work to other people’s requirements. It still has the 'Dude' sound, they don't come any better, volume and subtlety, richness and clarity, projection and intimacy, its has it all. And I think it looks amazing.

    Legendary Luthiers Five: Jeff Traugott 15 October 2016

    This was another huge success. Many thanks to Jeff for a fantastic day and a very interesting talk.

    This will be the fifth legendary Luthiers event. Previous events with Ervin Somogyi, Linda Manzer, Ray Kraut and Grit Laskin were a great success.

    Jeff will be bringing the next TAMCO guitar, specs still to be decided, let me know if you have any ideas. He is keen to discuss your requirements and take orders.

    It will follow the usual pattern, open house in my shop on the Saturday until six, talk at six, ticket holders only, then food at Bom Bane's at around eight. There are only twenty tickets available.

    This will be the fourth legendary Luthiers event. Previous events with Ervin Somogyi, Linda Manzer and Grit Laskin were a great success.

    The idea started out as a meet for owners of Ervin Somogyi and his apprentices guitars. Then I remembered that I was due a guitar from Ray Kraut soon. So Ray will be bringing a guitar and giving a talk.

    I am hoping many of you with guitars by Ervin and his apprentices will come along with your guitars and compare and contrast! I am planning to video the event and will continue with the owners meet in my house on the Sunday of there is enough interest. Non owners welcome too!

    I should have Somogyi apprentices guitars in stock from Ray, Leo Buendia, Hiroshi Ogino and Michi Matsuda.

    It will follow the usual pattern, open house in my shop on the Saturday until six, talk at six, ticket holders only, then food at Bom Bane's at around eight. There are only twenty tickest available.

    This was a fantastic success, enjoyed by all. Many thanks to Ray

    Legendary Luthiers: Linda Manzer visit 8 November 2014

    Following the great success of Ervin Somogyi's visit I decided to offer a Legendary Luthiers series of visits to TAMCO. Legends in contemporary guitar luthiery don't get any bigger than Linda Manzer.

    The visit was a great success. It was an honour to have Linda and Peggy White here. After a few hours chatting in the shop we all went over to Bom Bane's Café where Linda gave a wonderful slide show and Jane (Bom Bane) provided a fantastic spread of delicious food. It really was a privilege to hear Linda tell her story I'm I am over the moon to have one of her guitars in stock.

    I'm hoping to have Linda's close friend Grit Laskin and Jeff Traugott over in 2015.
