Welcome to MAIN STREET!
This is the section of our forum where Michael Messer products, concerts, tours and workshops are advertised, promoted and discussed. The idea of MAIN STREET is to keep the MM advertising in one place.
TIN CAN ALLEY is the place to post an advert for private sales of guitars and other music-related items.

Ahh.... the secret is out!
These are really excellent guitars and there will only ever be 15 of them.
A while ago I decided it would be great to add a 14 fret wood bodied MM guitar to the range and went ahead and designed something that is closely related to a 1936 National Trojan. This all takes a lot of time, money and shipping of prototypes (samples). Everything was good and I went ahead with a small production run just to test the water and see if there would be interest in this new model. When they arrived I was rather shocked to see that my guys in Shanghai had built a stunning instrument that was exactly what I designed and approved, except somehow they had got two stylistic details wrong. The F holes were misplaced and the body shape was just a wee bit different to the shape in the design. Dave King and I went through a few of them and decided that although there were a couple of stylistic discrepancies, that actually these are really very good guitars that are built and finished exceptionally well.
So I had a bit of a conundrum going in my head.... Hmmmm.... As everyone knows I am very fussy and particular about MM Guitars and will only sell the best possible guitars I can produce. Well these are exactly that, but they are not exactly what I designed and ordered. So my fanatical and fussy approach to running my guitar business has created a situation that is very advantageous to anyone in the market for a 14 fret wood bodied National-style guitar, because instead of selling them at £585.00, which was the intended retail price, I am selling these 15 MMB36 guitars for £499.00 each. This is an amazing deal, because every guitar and every customer gets exactly the same quality, setup and customer care, but for £499.00, which I think is probably an unbeatable deal. My loss is your gain!
I have sold two, so there's 13 more. Don't miss out because these are, as Chris so kindly wrote in his post, stunning guitars.
