The '59 DC

These guitars are my take on the classic set neck student models of the 50’s. Measurements were taken from an exceptional ’59 DC that I owned to produce a vintage looking, sounding and feeling guitar that is a stone cold classic!

Using the same materials and construction techniques as the Hurricane, these guitars have their roots firmly in the 50’s but with the added playability and reliability of a modern, hand built guitar.


I have owned some incredible original examples of these guitars from '55 though to '63 and have painstakingly taken the measurements of each one to build a vintage inspired guitar with modern playability and function but without the vintage price tag.​
