MANSFIELDORIGINAL DESIGN BY
ROBERT A. PEATE
Peate Musical originated the 'Mansfield' trade name
in the 1950s, named after the legendary Mansfield Street
in downtown Montreal.
The Peate retail store was located on Mansfield and
was the gathering place of choice for local and visiting musicians.
The original Mansfield guitars were produced in the best guitar factories in Japan, by makers who later became leading names in the industry.
The instruments were made to top level specifications
and were among the finest instruments produced.
In fact, the early Mansfields are now collector's guitars valued for their workmanship, rarity and fine sound characteristics.
The original Mansfields may be imitated, but never equaled. Mansfields were produced until the mid-1990s.
If you are the owner of an original Mansfield, we would be happy to include an image in our Mansfield archive.
