Dana’s personal guitar.
No frills. Just comfort, presence and versatility.
After a lifetime of favoring larger guitars, Dana found the L-DBO’s power-to-size ratio and clear, direct voice ideal for his personal needs: consisting of unwinding in the living room, casual jamming with friends, very occasional stage use, ease of play and ready transportability. He has since acquired several. Dana’s personal model features a coarse-grained Aged Tone Adirondack top, Sinker Mahogany back and sides, Animal Protein Glue and a single, tiny headstock Inlay.
“Contrary to popular belief, ugly tops sound best. Dark, fat winter growth rings dramatically enhance stiffness, allowing for a thin but strong, and highly responsive top. I got tired of rejecting the best-sounding stuff strictly on the basis of appearance and decided instead to reserve it for something special”.
