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.
All the Manzers are roughly the same age.
