Major museums have included Manzer Guitars in permanent collections and special exhibitions.


The Group of Seven Guitar Project will take over the length of one of McMichael’s most honourable spaces in Kleinburg Ontario. Eight masterwork guitars, commissioned from seven world-renowned Canadian guitar makers in homage to a particular Group of Seven member and Tom Thomson, will be presented in the round, allowing viewers to walk around and explore the various landscapes in wood and inlay hosted by the musical instrument. Linda paid homage to Lawren Harris. May 2017 to October 2017

There is a Manzer Archtop Guitar in the permanent collection of the Canadian Museum of Civilization (Gatineau Quebec). The instrument is a custom version of the Manzer Au Naturel Archtop called the "Endangered Species Model." See this guitar featured on the Museum of Civilization Archtop Page.


Selected guitars have been displayed at the Smithsonian Institution (Washington DC), and the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston Mass).
