What a wonderful tribute, The artists that created modern music all came to Mannys and this special store should be in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Because of the influence of Mannys all of us have been influenced in what we play! Viva Mannys!

My brother and I prepared for weeks in the summer of 1966 to make our first trip to the "city" from Astoria to see the guitars at Manny's. When we got there there was a Rickenbacker just like John Lennon's in the window and we knew we had found the place where our dreams were to become revealed! It took me two years but I bought my first Precision Bass on August 7, 1968 from Henry who was also tending to John Entwistle and Pete Townshend. They were playing the Schaefer Music Festival in Central Park that night. Entwistle also bought the same model that I did. Pete played a big box jazz guitar and made some very beautiful music while we all stood around trying not to drool on him! Fantastic day that I'll never forget. I bought more basses and guitars from Henry, Billy and Stuart over the years but I still have and use that first one which changed the course of my life. Thank you to the Manny's family for the music, instruments and great memories.

My Life at Manny's

I'm 65 now, but I first went to Manny's (my mom took me) to buy a Ludwig drum set at the age of around 10, around 1965.  This was the original Manny's and Manny himself helped me pick the black lacquer set.  Manny's wasn't the amazing palace of instruments it became; it was a modest narrow shop.When I switched to electric bass at the age of around 14, I returned to Manny's for a Gibson Les Paul bass and I forget which amp.My younger brother bought a red Hagstrom guitar there (our father took…See More

"Very first guitar purchased here I was 17. That was 1968. I must admit it took me a bunch of years to get serious about learning my instrument. Coming into Manny's from Brooklyn was inspirational..."
