    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.

    Another absolute stunner from Marc. The first thing that strikes me playing this beauty is the remarkable balance and individual note clarity, from the lowest to the highest note it has incredible definition and projection. Add the warmth and responsiveness of mahogany and you get a very versatile guitar.

    The playability is superb and it responds beautifully to everything from a pick to the lightest fingerstyle.

    Berkowitz F6 Concert - Sitka & Padauk

    Out of stock


    Padauk is gaining in popularity and this beautiful guitar from David demonstrates why. The first thing that strikes me is a very deep and luxurious bass with fantastic resonance across the range. This is a big sound that is very rich and warm that responds well to a pick or the most delicate fingerstyle.

    It takes a very experienced luthier to achieve this level of warmth and resonance and have great definition and note separation. This is a wonderful and very versatile guitar.

    Ogino OM 'Alice' - Sitka & Padauk

    Out of stock
    This beautiful set of very straight grained padauk was given to Hiroshi as his graduation present by Ervin Somogyi and he has done a fantastic job using it.

    Hiroshi's Zen rosette, embodies his "Wabi-Sabi", or "quiet simplicity" approach. Its a true work of art.

    The tone is as remarkable as the workmanship. This is a versatile guitar with a very full and well defined bass, with warm and punchy mids and exceptionally clear trebles. It responds beautifully to a gentle touch of the fingers and equally well to a pick with great balance and projection.

    Sold to Dave Pegg of Fairport Convention.

    1918 F4 that's seen some action. It structurally sound all round, with original tuners with the fantastic Handel buttons, original tailpiece and cover, later adjustable bridge and a modern shaped hardshell case.

    I love its well worn look and it sounds terrific, its warm and full with plenty of volume. A great price for a wonderful piece of history that has many a year of entertainment in it yet for players and audiences.

    £4,350.00
     
    In stock
    Weber's Yellowstone in Adirondack/red spruce and beautiful flamed maple with an oval soundhole. Great looks - the honey and tortoise is one of my all time favourites - and oh that sound.

    Many oval hole mandolins (particularly flat - tops) lack definition and clarity and have hard wishy-washy bass, this beauty has fantastic balance with sweet and well defined bass notes, complex and warm mids and wonderful clear and characterful trebles.

    It comes with Weber's superb hardshell case.

    Its a Fern F5 without the strap hanger and around three grand less but has 'the sound', its punchy with enough chop to lay low a few ban*os, with a sweet and sublime power. A gentler approach yields a very sweet, rich and warm sound with great separation and balance. This is a truly outstanding all-rounder.

    Whether hunting ban*oes or serenading, this beauty will be a faithful and willing accomplice.

    I can still remember when I first saw a photo of Pete's I-110. I thought it was darn ugly. By the end of the day I had gone back to the photos many times and completely changed my mind. When I got the opportunity to buy it I snapped it up but unfortunately it's the victim of my latest thinning of the herd.. just too many at home..

    Believed to be one of only three made with this headstock design... I know I am going to regret this....

    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.

    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.
