Linda Manzer Custom Sitar-Guitar
 
Tony McManus plays his Sitar-Guitar, which he calls the "Delhi-Caster"
August 6, 2015

Peghead Nation instructor Tony McManus demonstrates his custom Linda Manzer Sitar-Guitar, which Manzer first developed for jazz guitarist Pat Metheny, for whom she has built dozens of guitars, including the famous 42-string Pikasso guitar. The Sitar-Guitar gets its sitar-like buzzing tone from a unique bridge made of movable flat bone blocks, which each string rests on and vibrates against. Tony demonstrates this new unique guitar with Jacky Molard’s piece “Doina,” recorded on Tony’s Maker’s Mark album.
