memories from (my uncle) Steve Chapin

Ah yes. . . Henry.  Always a hot experience for me at Manny's.

It was there in the 70's (Harry with albums and Tom on tv with 
Make a Wish), that he referenced me as the "no-talent Chapin" 
one occasion while Tom and I were shopping there - it was 
actually very funny at the time, a Rodney Dangerfield moment. 
                                           
But for the next two decades, every time I would drop $5K a…

Henry was on to us..........

As we all know, in the mid to late '70's there were probably as many sales outside the stores as inside...One day, my friend John calls me and says "Hey, I'm going to 48th st. to sell my Telecaster...wanna' take a ride?" so I said yeah sure.....(we usually were there 4 or 5 times a month in those days)

After parking and walking up the block for about 20 minutes or so window shopping , we see these two guys standing in front of We Buy....they're looking at a Telecaster , so , John says…

48th Street Veteran

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…
