    Another amazing octave mandolin from Bill. Colorado engelmann spruce top (milled 1997) with red spruce spruce x bracing, Vermont mamaple (milled 2006) 2 piece back, 16" radius macassar ebony fretboard, bridge, pickguard, and peghead veneer, ivoroid celluloid binding, abalone position dots and wave inlay, 1 3/8 bison bone nut, grover tuners, sunburst lacquer finish over shella, Mangan custom 48-34-23-13 strings, tweed hardshell case.

    I have only ever owned two octave mandolins personally, both made by Mr. Bussmann.To use one of my favourite cliches again it sounds as good as it looks. Well defined bass (not a common feature on octave mandolins) with depth and resonance, warm and complex mids with clear and strong trebles... fantastic.

    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.

    This is a beauty and a beast, it is very loud. If you like your A5s to be very full with lots of warmth and depth this is the one. The chop has great volume and what I think of as a musical rather than percussive tone.

    When I last visited Bill and played his melon I told him I just had to have one. He said he felt that with the last one (his) he had achieved what he wanted form the idea and didn't want to make anymore. Mean son of a ******.

    Anyways, to cut a long story very short a while later I heard those immortal words 'I owe you a favour' this is that favour. I've had it a while now and despite the regular thinning of my herd its staying.

    I've been hassling Hans to send me a guitar for a few years now. It was well worth the wait. Punchy little parlour is a tired old phrase but it certainly applies here, fantastic volume (OK not as much a s dread) separation and projection with a deep and characterful tone, oak and Adirondack is clearly a winning combination. And what a beauty, I love the look of the oak and Hans' Larson style rosette and purfling. A perfect blues guitar with plenty headroom and sustain for digging in.

    There's a ding on the back of the headstock (see photo) £250 has been knocked off because of this.

    Before this arrived I was beginning to wonder why I had ordered another Oregon Myrtle guitar from Joel (I think this is the fifth), now I know! It looks great and sounds amazing.

    It has wonderful clarity and projection with great balance. All notes are crystal clear with outstanding definition and equal volume across the range. The bass notes are deep and lush with full and complex mids and rich trebles. It responds beautifully to a light touch or a more enthusiastic approach. A great all round guitar for all styles.

    Another tone monster from Grit, and it doesn't look half bad either!

    From Grit "the African Blackwood is the equal, in my experience, to old growth Brazilian, especially in terms of its instantaneous responsiveness." I'd have to agree with that. It has a depth and complexity of tone that I have rarely heard with incredible articulation and expressiveness, clarity and definition.

    "In researching Leonardo Da Vinci I uncovered something I considered very interesting and enticing. It turns out that in its history, the painting we call the Mona Lisa (“Portrait Of Lisa Del Giacondo “) was stolen only once in its lifetime. In 1911 an Italian man working at the Louvre, walked it out of the museum under his smock. It wasn’t until 2 years later that the painting was recovered, when the thief, Vincenzo Peruggi, offered it to the Uffizi Gallery, back in his home country. He felt he was restoring the painting to it’s rightful home in Italy.

    The important aspect of this tale is really its after-effect. Until this theft, the painting was a significant but not particularly exceptional Da Vinci painting of the period. But the notoriety it received from this incident began it’s unceasing rise to fame, until today it’s considered the most valued and valuable painting from the renaissance.

    So, this pivotal moment became the root of my story, and of the inlay design I’ve titled “The Peruggia Caper”. And there is a touch of humour.

    Here’s a description of the images, starting at the headstock and continuing down the fretboard:

    -In the headstock we see a Vertical orientation of the thief, walking off with the painting, which is partially hidden under his half-length smock. The upper portion of the painting is exposed, so we see the upper half of Mona Lisa’s face—plenty enough for us to recognize the image. A small section of her left arm will also be visible. Behind Peruggia we see the stone arches of the Louvre.

    -As we move into the fretboard the visuals shift to horizontal orientation and we see the upper arms and head and portions of the graphic square & circle border lines of the Vitruvian man. But in my story, we see his lower left arm grabbing the foot of the thief and his eyes looking in that direction.

    -Moving down we see Leonardo’s helicopter—large, but still of a size that all the recognizable parts are in view—but we see that it’s being pushed into service by the extended arm and hand of Leonardo himself.

    -The Leonardo gripping the helicopter is based on the only known authenticated self portrait done in his lifetime, when he was middle-aged.
    -In the ‘background’ behind this portrait, and contrastingly in a vertical view, we see the iconic image of Leonardo as an old man, this portrait will be done in a way that imitates the original style of the drawing, done in the manner common at the time, which was in red chalk (faded to orange in our time). I will engrave it and fill the cuts with red, and the background material will be a beige Jasper stone, which will give it marbled, aged look. By orienting this image 180 degrees from all the other fretboard elements of the story, it gives the impression that the older Leonardo is just an observer, standing back and overlooking the narrative and his younger self."

    There are many reasons why Jeff has had such a reputation for many decades, this is now one of them.

    It is hard to describe tone at the best of times but at this level it becomes almost impossible. 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.

    I liked the tone of the last CLM from Burton so much that I asked him to make this one as close as possible. This is another example of why mahogany is so popular, its been one of my favourite back and side woods for a long while now.

    Its another very light and responsive guitar with wonderful warm and sweet mahogany tones, full and rich bass notes, sweet and complex mids and clear, well defined trebles. And some stunning flamed mahogany with Burton's signature black neck, what a beauty.

    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.

    It has a very warm and sweet tone with great richness and complexity. Fantastic articulation, definition and projection from the well defined bass notes trough the sweet mids to clear and full trebles. If I was was on a desert island and only had one guitar...

    Its in excellent condition and has the classic Somogyi tone that Ervin is famous for. It is very rich and full, almost impossible to describe.

    It weighs in at 1.05 kg! And has a very rich, full and lively tone to match. I regretted not taking the tenor home, I'm thinking about this one too.

    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

    SOLD. OO and OM both in African blackwood due summer 2015.

    What can you say about the sound of a Somogyi? There's nothing else like it! Here's my best shot but I can't possibly get even close in words..

    It has a richness of tone that I've not heard in any other guitar, I've used the word orchestral to describe the Somogyi sound before and I still can't think of better description. There's a depth and complexity that that's hard to believe if you haven't heard it for your self. It responds magnificently to the lightest touch and overwhelms with luscious tone with a little more input. This all comes with exceptional balance, projection and clarity.. from a lingering single note to a rapid succession or a full chord, there's music in perfect harmony.

    Here's an edited version of Ervin's thoughts on wenge.

    "Brazilian rosewood, that traditional "Holy Grail" of fine guitar making woods is getting scarce.. [Many woods] are marketed as being desirable and adequate substitutes. In my view, some are and some aren't. As a guitar maker, my own preferences are for woods that are "live" rather than not, regardless of their grain, figure or color. What that means is that one can elicit a live and musical tone from a particular slice or chunk when one taps on it. Some woods can make sound on the order of thummmmmmmm or thimmmmmmmm (ginnnnnnnng, gonnnnnng, pinnnnnnng or ponnnnnnnng also work; I think you get the idea), with bell-like sustain; others go "thwick" or "thud". There are "live" woods that look rather plain, and there are "dead" woods that look like Raquel Welch in 3-D.

    My own searches have brought me to wenge (pronounced WHEN-gay). It's a dark, purplish-brown colored African … The thing that appeals to me about wenge is that it is very live. That is, when you hold a piece of it up and tap on it.. it'll ring like a piece of glass, plate of steel, or a crystal brandy snifter. This quality is known as "vitreousness", which literally means "glasslike-ness". And wenge will make such a sound… Wenge's vitreousness is a function of the wood's being brittle on the level of its cellular structure. In fact, it's that very brittleness that makes the vibrational action, and the sound that this produces, possible… it is this.. that puts wenge in the same category as that most prized of traditional guitar making woods, Brazilian rosewood."

    When deciding how to describe a guitar the first thing I do is think about what hits me first. This guitar has remarkable articulation and expression, fantastic projection and clarity with each note having perfect definition. Achieving this this along with fantastic depth and complexity of tone is why Nick has the reputation he has.

    This is a truly incredible guitar! It responds equally well to the lightest caress or a heavy pick, it will do it all. The bass notes are big, fat and warm and have great definition. The mids are sweet, full and complex with clarity and depth. The trebles have the same volume as all the other notes and are very clear with a bell-like fullness.

    Wonderful Martin 5-17T Tenor Guitar 1932. All original with banjo tuners and 'Earl Mead's Hawaiians' case.

    It arrived with CGDA tuning (the same as a mandola) but to me it sounded much better with a new set of strings in GDAE (octave mandolin) tuning. It has a very loud and full tone with lots of warmth and depth.

    I had been aware of Al Beardsell's amazing guitars for a while when I read the feature on him in the Fretboard Journal. I took a look at his website and was amazed to find this remarkable mandolin for sale.

    It is one of the most stunning mandolins I have ever seen. The sound has incredible clarity and finesse, power when called for and depth and subtlety when asked.

    It is in excellent condition with some very small marks. No previous owner, it was used by Al as a demonstration of his work, and was on loan to Mike Marshall for a few months and shown at his symposium summer 2010.

    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.

    The work of a legend in contemporary guitar making and proof of how Ed achieved that status. This is an exceptional guitar. The workmanship and detailing is flawless. The tone is heavenly.

    As I have mentioned before it takes years of hard won experience to achieve acoustic qualities that might otherwise be thought of as to some extent mutually exclusive. This amazing guitar has warmth, resonance and richness of tone with remarkable clarity from the fat, well defined bass to the fullest trebles I've heard. I would put it against any guitar I've ever played for balance and evenness of tone. A truly great guitar.

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.

    Oval or f hole for a mandocello? It would seem logical that a cello would be better with oval holes given that bass and resonance is the point of a cello. I was surprised when I visited Bill Bussmann to hear the incredible bass from his jazz guitar bodied, f hole, octave mandolin, so surprised that I insisted he sell it to me! Not being a jazz fan I have never understood the sound of a jazz guitar, I just don't get it or particularly like it. It's the last thing I would have thought would produce a bassy and resonant larger mandolin family instrument, but is does! ... end of long story.... This Eastman cello proves the theory that somehow a jazz guitar body produces a deep and resonant sound. It has incredible warm and dark basses with rich and thick resonance, it plays easily and is a very fine mandocello. Comes with hardshell case.

    Well, to coin the old cliché it sounds as good as it looks. It has rich warm tones and great clarity with the volume of a much bigger guitar, great balance from down low all the way to the top and fantastic playability. Another I want to take home.

    Here’s a special offer on a special guitar that has, what some might say, are ‘issues’. We’ve had the guitar in the shop for a while now. During that time it has done its own ‘relic job’ by developing lacquer checking across the whole surface of the Spruce top. The back, sides and neck are unaffected.

    Anyone who knows a bit about the ‘lacquer checking’ that is added to modern custom shop electric guitars will understand what I mean by a ‘relic job’. There is absolutely no adverse effect to the tone or the overall loveliness of the guitar, it sounds wonderful, it’s just not something that you usually find on an expensive handmade acoustic guitar. There's an image of the lacquer checking below.

    The fret ends on the lower side of the neck could do with a little tidying up too though playability is very good as it is.

    There’s not much room left in the saddle for those who like an ultra-low action though the current action is great for fingerstyle.

    We don’t currently have the services of a luthier so we are therefore offering this guitar at £2,995, a massive £4,000 discount! Yes, you can own a seven grand guitar that you might not have been able to afford.

    Feel free to make us a cheeky offer as long as you don’t mind a cheeky response.

    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.

    Adirondack and rosewood make for a very powerful guitar with endless headroom, huge basses, awesome warm and full mids and bright and loud trebles. Anyone who know Vo Fletcher it's previous owner will know that this is the kind of guitar that Vo goes for.

Nickel James engraved tailpiece, Ebony finger rest/pick guard and an Ebony bridge. With hard case.

    This is a true cannon. It has incredible volume, projection and clarity AND richness, depth and resonance. It takes a great luthier to get these qualities in the same instrument. It will chop and bark for the bluegrass player, howl for the blues man, sing sweet for the balladeer and respond willingly to any other style.

    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.

    There has been a lot of excitement about wenge recently. In these times of traditional tone woods becoming scarce and in some cases tightly restricted and banned, it's great to work with a wood that is plentiful and cheap.

    Some find the look of it to be plain but others love the deep and rich variations of colour that can be seen when looking closely, to be very beautiful. The way Kent has combined it with Leopardwood accents makes it an incredibly beautiful guitar however you look at it.

    Kent says this is the best guitar he has made and by his standards something.. by my standards it has a wonderful full sound, with complex and resonant tones across its very well balanced and defined range.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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!

    In many ways twelve frets to the body and a cutaway is the perfect combination. It gives the sweetness of the more centred bridge position and allows access all the way to the top fret.

    It definately works on this beauty from Alan. The first thing that struck me about this guitar is its lightness and ease of play, it feels like a much smaller guitar.

    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.

    My second oak parlour from Steve and this beauty is just as spectacular as the last.

    It has fantastic balance and projection with great warmth, depth and clarity. My mother used to say 'great things come in small packages' this certainly applies here. It has as much volume as a much bigger guitar and is a comfortable to play as you could possibly wish for.

    In stock
    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.

    The result is a warm tone with great balance and the superb definition of Adirondack, deep/well defined bass, complex mids and clear, ringing trebles.

    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.
