Manne Guitars was established in 1987 by Andrea Ballarin in Schio, in northeastern Italy, where the Padanian Flats meets the Dolomite Alps. This is one of the most creative districts of the famed Venetian Region, responsible for the design and production of a wide range of fine handcrafted highly innovative goods and products. In this unique environment, new technologies are combined with creative ideas, always looking for new designs, new techniques and processes that will create superior products. “There is always a better way to do it” is our philosophy and the credo at Manne. We are always striving to provide better instruments for personal expression.
