Manuel Adalid Anniversario #80 – Cedar 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 #80.

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.

Headstock from the Adalid Anniversario

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.  The Mother of Pearl highlights in the Rosette is simply deadly beautiful.  The Alessi F5 machines set her off perfectly.
