Why would anyone decide to start building an acoustic guitar at the beginning of the
21st century when there are so many good instruments already on the market? Every
master has his own story. So, what is in it for us?
Well, first of all guitar building is a passion for us rather than anything else. Why do we
do it? Simply because we love guitars and we are always fascinated by what a talented
musician can expose from this fairly simple instrument. We were also always intrigued
by the different sounds coming out of the best guitars we tried and heard. If you add to
this puzzle the natural beauty of wood—which we adore—you will probably understand
how inspiration from nature and the great guitars of the past have put us on a quest to
create guitars we are very proud of.
To build a guitar is not that difficult; creating great guitars is. Controlling all the
contributing factors, and making consistently fine guitars that accommodate the different
tastes and styles of musicians is an art to which all luthiers strive to be king. We are
proud of the concepts we use that differ from the traditional guitar design. All DK Guitars
have an original body shape, adjustable neck joint, bracing pattern, and bridge design
along with other innovations.
We do not build hundreds of guitars per year and we use only the best sounding and
looking wood that we carefully select. All together this creates a sound, look, and feel
that we believe makes our guitars unique and a joy to play. This is, after all, what most
guitar players are seeking.
