Bill McMannis Bill McMannis Asheville I am a fingerstyle guitarist and began playing over 50 years ago. My influences range from Chet Atkins to Segovia to Terry Kath. My repertoire includes classical music, pop standards and jazz chord melodies. My main guitar is a Fender American Telecaster Deluxe and my backup is a D’Angelico Excel EXL-1. My main amp is a Fender SuperSonic 22, but I usually record using a DV Mark Little Jazz. On the various guitar forums I am known as Alder Statesman or Archtop Bill.
