GUEST,jay Mansfield Guitars?????? (83* d) RE: Mansfield Guitars?????? 28 Feb 09


I owned a Mansfield guitar in the late nineties. I bought it off a retired guy in Calgary that quit playing and he told me he had bought it new from a shop in downtown Toronto in the late fifties I believe. I am not %100 positive on that but the guitar was definitely old and the amp I bought at the same time was purchased with the guitar. Anyways the guitar played like a dream, stayed in tune perfectly (I never even took it in to get it set up), and to top it off it was a very nice looking guitar. I have yet to find a guitar that plays as well with such low action and there was zero fret buzz anywhere on the fret board. Unfortunately I sold it so that I had the NAME BRAND EQUIPMENT which was dumb because I have yet to come across another guitar that comes close to its playability except for maybe my Gibson BFG which I grow fonder of everyday. So if I were you and I had one and it played nice and stayed in tune I would keep it. Thats just my opinion though. Cheers from Canada.
