We've been out and about at the shows this past year to find the next great builders for DG to represent--and brother have we found some! Recently Paul met with David Murray, founder of the India-based Dehradun Guitar Company, who had an impressive Concert-size guitar to show. Long story short, we ended up snagging one for ourselves.
This brand new Dehradun Concert has a rich tone and serious projection. Featuring South Indian Rosewood for the back and sides and Red Cedar for the top, this guitar's big voice will easily reach peak volume with even the gentlest application of a pick or fingertip. The satin-finished neck is set up fast and low for easy-breezy left hand work. When you let the trebles ring out, you'll notice a few gorgeous overtone strains which seem to swell after a moment after the note's been plucked; natural reverb at its finest. The Somogyi-esque interrupted rosette, Mahogany-and-Rosewood neck, and Abalone trim come together in an attractive package that looks just about as good as it plays.

"David's story is an inspiration. Breaking out of the mold by starting a guitar company in India, David's managed to rehabilitate local destitute men by training them to become an impressive stable of luthiers in a short period of time, and the Dehradun label is churning out some serious toneboxes which we're more than happy to represent. The satin-finished neck is fast and smooth, plus the fit and finish is top notch. A bargain for looks and tone of this calibre." - Paul Heumiller
"This is the first guitar I've played from this region of the world and it is impressive. It definitely shows some influence from the Somogyi style of building in its design. "Built in the foothills of the Himalayas is just not something I thought I'd ever see on a guitar label." - Al Petteway
