Few guitars command the respect and absolute desire of the DG-50. From the use of the woods, the attention to the appointments. The unequaled Tone quality, playable the DG-50 is the pinnacle of Guitars.
If I had to pick one guitar to play and could only pick one it would be the DG-40. Not because I designed, engineered this guitar, but because it is just so darn good, if it wasn't a Gruene I would still feel that way about this guitar. For overall playability and tone, I've not played or built a better guitar. This is an amazing guitar.
If this was a Martin you would call it a HD-28, but it's not its a Gruene and it comes standards that others just don't. In fact in order to get the same appointments you would have to send it to the custom shop.
This is a tradition that is just waiting for you. Excellent tone, beautiful Mahogany back/sides, Herringbone bindings and Maple wraps all the things you pay extra for elsewhere we incorporate as part of our standard build.
