I got my first good acoustic from Manny's in 1975. A 1975 Ovation Balladeer model 1112-1. The second one they came out with. Loved that guitar and had it redone recently thanks to saving my Manny's original hand written bill! Professional or amateur, the guys at Manny's took real good care of you and every year I brought my ax back for an adjustment.. no hassle. We loved going in and doing business knowing we were in the company of the greeats when we gazed at all the autographed photos on the wall of fame!
