The late Robert Mattingly was a true pioneer in the guitar world. Not only was he a revered builder but he owned a shop called “World of Strings,” formerly located in Long Beach where he also sold accessories, guitars, and also had a teaching program. Mattingly, a self-taught builder, has an approach to guitar that is entirely his own and thus created instruments that were unlike any other.

This Mattingly has a rich-deep bass and warmth and sustain that is almost cello-like. The trebled are balanced and compliment the warmth of the basses without overpowering them. There is an overall charm about this guitar that comes through when one sits down to play it. The guitar has an expertly repaired headstock that is even stronger now that it was previous to the damage. Inquire about this guitar today.
