The Dusty Corner

Sometimes the finest of acoustic guitars and mandolins fail to find appreciative owners. It doesn’t mean that they are lacking in any way. In fact they are often some of our favourites,

We like to find them loving homes and allow them to play some music so we offer them at reduced prices. 

These acoustic guitar and mandolins are NOT dusty, they are shiny and set up though they may display some minor play wear obtained whilst at TAMCO.

    Out of stock
    Another guitar in my ‘small, very easy to play with a big sound’ project. It has a fourteen inch lower bout, short (24.9”) scale, armrest, 12 frets to the body and a cutaway. It just couldn’t be easier to play and the sound is classic Batson. Big and warm but with clarity and balance.. To use one of my favourite clichés a quart in a pint pot.

    In excellent condition, new price was £5995. There was a lot of excitement created about this beauty in a build thread on the AGF. It was well worth the wait.

    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.

    Excellent condition slope D made in Dana's workshop in 2005.

    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. Built for performance and filling a venue with great definition and projection it also responds very well to a gentler approach.

    Cory says this is his best yet, I agree, that cathedral organ bass I keep talking about is plentiful here. If its a strong bass response (and rich and warm mids and clear trebles) you are looking for, look no further.

    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.

    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.

    SEE A VIDEO here.

    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.

    A regular customer spotted Chris' work a while ago and I'm very glad he did. This is a beautiful guitar with with a very solid tone, solid seems a strange word to use but what I'm getting at is chords that sound completely even with no strange beats or wolf tones roaming around. Individual notes are strong, well defined and full, the overall tone is dark, rich and vibrant.
