Left to right:

  • Baritone guitar by Tony Karol, acquired during the recording of Life Short Call Now
  • 12-string by Linda Manzer, made for another of her customers, which found its way to me.
  • Original 6-string made for me by Linda Manzer in ’88 (?).
  • Manzer 6-string made for someone not long afterward, which came to me a few years ago.
  • Dobro I picked up new in the late 80s.
  • Charango made for me by Linda Manzer. This was the first acoustic instrument Linda made for me.
