    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.

  2. Legendary Luthiers: Linda Manzer visit 8 November 2014

    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.

    Legendary Luthiers Four: Ray Kraut and Somogyi and apprentices guitar owners meet 31 Oct 2015


    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

    William (Grit) Laskin is legendary for his inlays. He is a VERY entertaining speaker covering his part in the development of the soundport and arm bevel with many informative and interesting stories to tell.

Suffice to say that it is truly incredible, combing qualities that might be thought mutually exclusive, for instance resonance and clarity, depth and definition and subtlety and projection, you get them all in this remarkable guitar! The tone and responsiveness and are what made the Traugott legend.

    Traugott BK koa/German spruce acoustic guitar - sold

    The Koa BK is Jeff's signature model and now I know why. This is a truly outstanding guitar.

    From the deep, luscious basses through the complex and warm mids to the clear and bell-like trebles the definition and projection is exactly the same. I have never before had such a well balanced guitar.

    It's hard to know what to say about such an incredible instrument... The bass notes are immense and well defined. The mids have a depth and complexity that is rarely heard. The trebles are fat and full with great clarity and definition.

    Reputations like Jeff's take many years to establish and total dedication to maintain, craftsmanship at this level is an honour to witness.

    Manzer 'The Manzer' - Cedar & Rosewood

    Out of stock


    There is an Acoustic Magazine review of this guitar here.

    With the 'Manzer Wedge' this feels like an OO sized guitar to play, supremely comfortable and effortless.

    The balance and clarity is the best I've heard, with perfect individual note definition from bottom to top. There is a depth and richness to the tone that defies belief with incredible articulation. There are good reasons why luthiers like Linda have the reputations that they do; this is one of them.

    Its hard to know what to say sometimes when such amazing guitars arrive. I am shocked that Sheldon's work isn't more widely known.

    This is an original and wonderful work of art. I'm am fond of commenting on how great luthiers can combine qualities that otherwise might be considered mutually exclusive. Well Sheldon has pulled it off in achieving the big sound that you might expect from a sitka/rosewood sixteen inch guitar of this quality with remarkable individual note clarity and balance.

    Players in smaller rooms won't need amplification, neither will those who play with a soft touch - finger tips not nails for instance - lack any response or tonal character. Its big and beautiful and soft and mellow, a guitar that will respond to all moods and playing styles. Brilliant!

    An incredibly beautiful guitar from Sergei, and incredible sound. Its warm and full with outstanding balance. As I keep saying only the very best luthiers can combine tonal qualities that to lesser mortals would be mutually exclusive. To get this level of warmth with great separation, clarity and attack is a remarkable achievement.

  16. Rigel Custom Comet

    Rigel Custom Comet

    Out of stock
    With an Adirondack spruce top and Pete's great pickup this custom comet sounds great, acoustic and plugged in. It has Rigel's legendary playability and a rectangular tweed hardshell case. It looks ... fill in the space... I know I am going to get lots of grief about this from the purists but the purest of purists (glad I'm writing not saying this) don't like Rigels anyways.

    It all started with an idea to post on various mandolin websites the opportunity for folk to design their own Rigel. The response was not what I and Pete and Peter had hoped for so I was left with the design job to do myself. Being a literal and unimaginative kind of person the obvious design for Rigel's new Comet model was to make the tail one end of a comet's tail and angle the soundhole for the comet. The guys at Rigel contributed the hot rod car flame and the black top with distant star sparkle and midnight blue back and sides and here we are. I think it's wonderful, if you agree please let me know, if you hate it, please tell somebody else.

    This 12/15 - twelve frets to the body and a 15 inch lower bout - is another fantastic guitar from Steve. The body join at the twelfth fret gives a very full and rich tone due to the changed position of the bridge and the cutaway gives access all the way up.

Fantastic in all departments, rich, full and well defined in the bass department, sweet and warm in the mids and clear and rich trebles. A mandolin for all occasions and all styles.

    It sounds tremendous, a big and warm sound but with great articulation and the clarity and definition of cocobolo. It responds to a nail-less finger as easily as a heavy pick. A fantastic fingerstyle guitar but capable of much more.

    I can still remember the first conversation I had with Mike (Kemnitzer, Mr. Nugget). I nearly fell over when he said he would like to have some mandolins here at TAMCO. I have just about recovered but am feeling a little unwieldy again. It is a privilege to have a mandolin here by one of the legendary contemporary luthiers. As well as looking like it should cost twice as much the sound is superlative. The note separation and clarity is off the scale,. the depth and quality of tone is something I haven't heard before.. It has volume and subtlety, bark, bite and sweetness.

    My first two guitars from Steve sold quickly and I like this one even more. Walnut is a wood that is not popular in some quarters but I've liked every Walnut guitar I've had built.

    It has a very full and luscious tone with warm and rounded basses with great definition. The mids are rich and complex and the trebles fat but clear all the way up. The overall balance is fantastic with great projection and volume. It has plenty of headroom for those with a heavy pick style and the sweetest clear and resonant tone from a light touch with fingers with or without nails.

    Stunning in all departments.

    Ken does it again. A stunningly beautiful guitar (my favourite rosette so far) with fantastic sound at an unbelievable price. He hasn't filled the pores and while it makes it a little tricky to photograph it looks amazing, three dimensional and very tactile.

    The sound is very full and open, lively but warm and balanced.. my kind of guitar.

    Its my first in guitar padauk and it certainly won't be the last.

    My first from Tom and more than ample proof of the reputation he has gained over recent years.

    With bevelled bindings top an back it is a supremely comfortable guitar to play. Feeling so comfortable and at ease allows you to concentrate on playing and listening to its wonderful tone. It has a deep an sonorous, rich and mellow sound with great separation and definition, fantastic for letting each note contribute a full palate and blend with the next. A dream fingerstylists guitar.

    And not to forget, fantastic workmanship and detailing (look at the back of the headstock), a work of art.

    Wow! The bass of a dreadnought but much, much more. A dread I could take home.. want to take home.

    Someone who played it before it crossed the pond commented "Sounds like a dread with some sophistication.".. that's a great way to put it.

    The neck is adjustable to change the action so you can go from powerhouse picking to gentle fingerstyle in a jiffy.

    Kent says "One of the things I've worked hard on and am really happy with about this guitar is the blend of the traditional and contemporary. I grew up in North Carolina around a lot of Bluegrass and traditional Appalachian music but there are plenty of people building traditional dreads and doing a great job of it. I wanted to build something that gave a nod to that tradition but was decidedly my own."

    The sound is very focused with unbelievable balance and clarity. Each note - from the lowest to the highest - rings out with warmth, perfect definition, depth of tone and great projection. As well as being an aesthetic masterpiece this is a perfect tool for the dedicated musician.

    This Legacy has unbelievable separation and definition from the low E all the way to the top, each note is clear and well defined. It also has great volume and a rich and deep tone, responding equally well to a pick or the gentlest fingerstyle, a very versatile guitar.

    I first played a Gallatin in the States in the mid nineteen nineties and remember it still. This is an example of where every cent has gone into the sound. With no bindings and a satin finish it looks great.

    With a solid hand carved spruce top, solid hand carved maple back and sides, solid cast tailpiece and Brekke bridge it's the least expensive US of A hand-made F5 around. The basic spec of course does not affect the sound, this is a bluegrass cannon, bark and bite a plenty, volume to challenge those b*njos but with enough complexity to make a great all-rounder. With custom hardshell case.

    Leo does it a gain! The last modified dreadnought I had from him sold very quickly. I am not expecting this beauty to be here for long. The workmanship is impeccable, take a look at the rosette and matching end graft and headstock inlay.

    The sound is equally outstanding. Many of Ervin Somogyi’s former apprentices make the mod D model and with very good reason, it has all the power and volume you can get from an acoustic guitar with immense headroom. The Swiss spruce a fiddle back mahogany in this very fine example give fantastic clarity. You get incredible depth and richness of tone with great balance with all the notes form the lowest to the highest having equal definition and projection. This is a stunning guitar.

    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."

    Rosta is the man for getting great bass from a mandolin and that's what you want from an octave mandolin. This beauty in spruce and flamed maple with a twenty two and three quarters inch scale length has a very strong but controlled bass with fantastic warm and vibrant mids and clear ringing trebles. Many octave mandolins suffer from muddiness, not this one, the balance and projection is amazing and it plays like a dream and sounds fantastic acoustic and plugged in. With case.

    In excellent condition with a few surface marks.

    In excellent condition. This is lot of guitar for the money.

    I have compared it with other sitka/rosewood jumbos and this is the sweet one! The sound is very warm and lush without lacking definition. Fantastic for picking and strumming and more than capable of some delicate fingerstyle.

    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.
