Reading that Manson/Cort press release got me thinking of a Manson headless double-neck – totally handmade, totally bespoke – that I bid on Ebay for about 7-8 years ago. It went for £300, £300! But I just did not have the money….

it joins that long list of guitars that I was this close to getting but for various reason, never quite worked out. Yes I’m talking about you, PRS EG on the wall at A1 Music in Manchester…

So is there any guitar that got away from you? That beauty that you were so close to getting but it sneaked away. Let me know about it and I’ll set up a wall of shame for the best ones.
