Models - DC

The DC is a “double cut” style guitar that strated in the early 60s.  It is a very light weight instrument with eash upper register access.  Each DC has the traditional neck heel joint as well as a long neck tenon.  The truss rod system has been modernized to the Vaschenko dual action, single style truss rod system. Each DC has a headstock volute to reduce the volatile neck area of the original design.  Each guitar is made with hot hide glue and the finish is high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. The guitar can be ordered with various pickup options and finish colors.
