Manuel Adalid Anniversario 2013 Cedar w/Madagascar RW


Meeting Manuel Adalid was a special treat for me, knowing of his longstanding pedigree in the industry, as well as his work ethic.   Playing some of his concert instruments was an equal pleasure.  I decided then and there that I would have Manuel’s best work in my own gallery.   From the Lacote to the Torres to the Hauser to his own Anniversario, I was so immensely taken with his guitar’s ability to voice the music authentically, with subtlety, and with grace.

The Anniversario guitar is mighty special, on a class with the powerhouses of this generation.  Celebrating 50 years of building from 1957, Manuel has built select few of these guitars, this particular Cedar Double Top being one of a few select instruments built in 2013.  For some reason, Manuel forgot to number the guitar, so I’m going with 2013?  LOL

Double Top with Nomex, utilizing the ultimate in Manuel’s experimental tech, this guitar really tells you something immediately.  First, I played her softly.  Nice.  As I played I became more aggressive, where the guitar handled the volume increase magnificently.  Voicing was even and balanced, separation and clarity exceptional.  Warm yet vibrant.  By the time I was done, I was smiling, saying, ‘whooo’, which is always a good thing.

The Madagascar Rosewood is a wonder to behold, being of dark red, rich ruddiness, streaked with deep chocolate browns.  Manuel uses nothing but his best stock of old seasoned woods to create his singular creations of this level.  The headstock is magnificent, mindful of top notch German aesthetic.  Raised fingerboard as well.  The Mother of Pearl highlights in the Rosette is simply deadly beautiful.

The price includes a Luthier HSC and Expedited Shipping to the 50US.  I have lowered the price of this particular guitar to $4995?  We just changed the strings, cleaned her up again (part of our quarterly maintenance of every single guitar in the gallery), noticed the slightest little bit of play wear on the top.  No brainer, I lowered the price.  Somebody please take advantage of this monster of a guitar at this price!  Yikes!!  Rich



MP3 Audio – 171006-adalid-anniv-2013-cedar – amazingly sensitive yet powerful.  Made to be driven, she’s quite evocative.  Great great guitar
