I bought this beautiful accordion from someone who had found it in their Grandfather's closet for $500 in 2007. It has remained in its plush case since I bought it. I was collecting instruments as I thought I might build a home recording studio. I have since had to sell everything related to the studio, and just realized that I still had this. I don't know much about accordions, except to say that this one is immaculate, and the straps and bellows are in excellent condition, which is rare in…Continue

The funniest memory (in retrospect) I have of Manny's is from September of 1976. I was living in Levittown, NY at the time, and I used to hitchhike into the city with my guitar all the time to play. I had no fear, and today you'd think even less sense, but this was a legitimate form of transportation in those days!. One night I got lucky though, and my friend Stevie Cochran arranged for me to ride into the city with his friend Brian. On the way downtown to the village, which is where I liked to… Continue

ah, geez when I was a 17-year-old runaway kid my very best friend played a hollow-body Gretsch...he was a really weird genius who had a very mathematical approach to the guitar...the last year that he played out, he was doing solo guitar shows where he would do one 45-minute composition, very cerebral stuff that would put you right to sleep. Then he went back to college and got an Economics degree. I can't see a hollow body Gretsch without thinkin o him.
"I bought my first and only violin at Manny's in 1968-69, in an old-fashioned antique wooden case, which I lined myself with beautiful red velvet. I remember he asked me "How much money you got?" and I said "$50.00!" and he…"
"Thanks Sandy! My grandfather and Manny were first cousins. My dad who is now gone was second cousins with Henry and I am third cousins with Holly, Ian and Judd. I remember going to Manny's as a kid with my grandfather and I…"
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
