48th Street Veteran

Posted by Paul Ulino on February 17, 2013 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

I only worked at Manny's for a short while, about 8 months, but worked on the infamous 48th street in NYC for about 16 years before moving west to Los Angeles. I worked at Alex Music starting in 1986(?), then We Buy Guitars, Sam Ash, Manny's, back to Sam Ash, and last, but certainly not least, Rudys. I knew Henry, Judy, the gorgeous Holly, Ian and Judd for many, many years. They were all great people and great to work for. Manny's should've been declared a national landmark due to their history and countless contributions to music and musicians. Very, very sorry it's no longer on 48th street. That store was a destination location for musicians from all over the world for decades and there will never be another place like it. I'll never foret the time's, experiences and mostly, the people I got to know while at Manny's and on 48th street. I am proud to call them all my friends.

I wish nothing but the best for the Goldrichs.

Love you all!

My Manny's Music Story

Posted by Gary Kott on October 21, 2012 at 1:10pm 1 Comment

In 1967 a guy named Dave heard me playing “Hey Joe” on my acoustic guitar and asked me if I owned an electric.  I didn’t.  He was starting a rock band and needed a rhythm guitar player.  The members of the band were Dave on bass, Tim on drums, Randy on lead guitar.  Randy studied classical guitar as a boy.  His claim to fame was appearing as a contestant on The Ted Mack Amateur Hour, “I came in second to a dancing horse.”  We were college students at a small school in Ohio.  Dave was adamant about me buying an electric guitar.  He dragged me out of my dorm room and into his car, “C’mon we’re going to Manny’s.”  I asked, “Where’s that?” Dave answered, “Forty-eighth Street.”  So off we headed, five hundred miles down the road.  When we arrived I was overwhelmed by everything about Manny’s, the thousands of instruments, the photos of rock stars, the exorbitant price of a beautiful white Fender Stratocaster.  A salesman asked me, “How much do you have to spend?”  I showed him my…
