Description

We're quite pleased to offer a new addition to DG's stable: a brand new 2016 SG-2 from luthier Sam Guidry, the senior instructor at the Galloup School of Guitar Building and Repair. By hybridizing the typical SJ body, Guidry provides the player with an instrument characterized by depth and expressiveness, a delicate balance which he achieves with aplomb. For the fingerstylist, this SG-2 is a tool of deadly precision, with an almost surgical separation of notes that allows your arrangements to ring out in all their complex glory. Explosive bass? Well-stocked here. Need treble strings crystalline but juicy? Think of these as sirloin diamonds.


Guidry's aesthetic is understated to the point that the Birdseye Maple and Engelmann Spruce grab one's attention, bound as they are by jet-black Ebony bindings and appointed with Spalted Maple around the soundhole and with Ebony lines inlaid into the headstock veneer. The well-rounded C profile neck is intensely comfortable such that the left hand is smoothly cradled from thumb to knuckles. Add to that a slightly elevated fingerboard and you've got an instrument well-honed for fingerstyle, or practically anything else you'd care to throw at it. If you're looking for a responsive, articulate powerhouse, this SG-2 is a hands down winner.


We recently hosted Clive Carroll for a series of lessons and performances here at Dream, and while he was here he recorded "The Prince's Waltz" on Sam's SG-2. Click here for a link to the YouTube video: www.dreamguitars.com/detail/5400-guidry_sg2_2016/Clive was kind enough to offer us a copy of the TAB, which you can find here: www.dreamguitars.com/tab/The_Princes_Waltz.pdf.

It was fortuitous that Sam and I finally met at Woodstock this year. This SG-2 has an inviting warmth in the middle registers which seamlessly blends the upper and lower registers. It's not easy to make a Maple guiter sing with such a balanced voice, but Sam's pulled it off well here.
 
I like this guitar. I think the woods and body design combine to make a very balanced guitar. I also like the elevated fingerboard. There is an obvious Somogyi influence in the heel and peghead design but it has a sound all its own.
