I started playing guitar in 1972 and my older peers told me that the only place to get an ax was Manny's. Sure enough we got on the train from up in the bronx and came to Manny's and were blown away by the depth of the guitars available, experienced staff and the nostalgia even back in the 70's. It was a treat to see Jimi's picture and Jimmy Page and Johnny winter, the beatles clapton. I once ran in to Steve Howe in the store. I did buy a few guitars from Manny's over the years.
I work on Wall St and whenever I am in Midtown and have a minute I walk over and check out what is going on.
Manny's will be missed. I will make a pilgramage befor eit closes for one last browse and maybe a new Firebird!!!
thanks for setting up the wall for all us Guitar lovers. I know like me, it was the source of our first guitars!!!
