RICK TURNER Guitars

 

Dubbed “The Father of Boutique Guitars” by Premier Guitar, Rick Turner took inspiration from Grateful Dead, 19th Century Johann Georg Stauffer acoustics, and of course Lindsey Buckingham when designing the now iconic Model 1. In addition to the Model 1, the Renaissance guitars and basses have become a staple in the Turner line known for being extremely light weight, and sounding remarkably acoustic even when plugged in. As if building guitars and basses wasn’t enough, Turner helped engineer the Grateful Dead’s “Wall of Sound” which is a distortion free PA system designed to address the crowd as well as serve as its own monitoring system!  DHR Guitar Experience is proud to carry Rick Turner guitars and basses in both right and left-hand versions!  Every instrument from DHR Guitar Experience is set up for optimal playability, and ships with a fresh set of strings!
