Sold Make an enquiry


While this nearly 20-year-old De La Haye work of art by Andy Manson has seen some wear over the years, its premium appointments, incredible build quality, and wide-open tone are still unparalleled. The De La Haye Black Rose’s Exhibition Grade German Spruce top, and American Rock Maple back and sides impart a bright yet robust voice with plenty of volume, while still retaining touch sensitivity. With antique Mother of Pearl inlays, 100-Year-Old Brazilian Rosewood distributed across its fretboard, peghead veneer, and neck, and 10,000-year-old fossilized mammoth tusk utilized for its saddle, nut, pins, and tuner buttons, this master-built instrument is a modern-day relic with an ancient spirit. This guitar may show signs of its age, with a top crack and scratches throughout, but this De La Haye Black Rose built by Andy Manson is a truly unique instrument that cannot be matched.  Please feel free to contact us directly for an in-hand description of the instrument.
