Description


Dave Murray's India-based Dehradun Guitar Company is consistently churning out guitars which sound as good as they look. That's saying something, considering the precision of the fit and finish and the harmonious sense of curve and contour present in this 2017 SJ in North Indian Rosewood and Redwood.



If you're in the market for a well-balanced and responsive guitar that lends itself equally well to picks and fingertips, this is one Dehradun worth considering. We found the middle and upper registers particularly warm and present, with the trebles expertly straddling the line between clarity and projection. The short scale and 13-fret neck, combined with a Redwood top, lend an extra Oomph! to the sweet voice that translates faithfully in an amplified setting, thanks to the onboard L.R. Baggs Anthem SL pickup. These guitars come from a good place, and the attention to detail and care that went into their construction shows in the smoothness of the tone, and the shine of the finish.

The interrupted rosette helps focus attention on the gorgeous Redwood top, and pairs neatly with the Abalone trim. 13-fret necks seem to be making a comeback these days, and for good reason: a little more warmth goes a long way toward filling out the guitar's voice and creating an enveloping tone.
 
This is a really satisfying guitar to play. It's balanced and has a great feel. The design elements give a nod to Somogyi's building style, but the tone is unique.
