Spending years on tour gives world class musicians the time to truly hone a signature sound; the kind of sound that only comes from countless shows and hours in the studio perfecting their craft. With a signature model acoustic guitar, you can build off your favorite artist's sound and style, developing a sound all your own in the process. The beauty of signature model acoustic guitars is that they are built and developed with direct feedback and specifications from some of the most popular and skilled performers in the world.
The size, shape, materials and more have all been chosen specifically by these artists to give a truly special playing experience. As you would imagine, no two signature model acoustic guitars are entirely alike, however, the same basic rules that apply to regular acoustic guitars apply to signature series ones. The bigger the body of the guitar, the bigger the sound produced is going to be. So, for example, the D John Sebastian Acoustic Guitar from Martin features a large dreadnought body that is sure to ring out brilliantly every time you strum its strings. The choice of material used in the construction of these guitars also plays a huge role in the way they sound. Many of these signature model acoustic guitars are built with rare or high end wood for unparalleled and distinct sounds. Different woods produce different sounds, from the punchy sound of Jeff Tweedy's FSC certified mahogany Martin guitar, to the strong, dark tones produced on Eric Clapton's signature rosewood acoustic guitar. Regardless of which signature guitar you choose, you're going to be impressed by the sound. Not only are these guitars signature in sound, they are also signature in style.
From the beautiful vine motif on Taylor Swift's Baby Taylor, to the iconic heart-shaped rosette on the Alkaline Trio's Fender, to the patriotic power of Dave Mustaine's Dean, these guitars not only give you the tone of your heroes, they also can help you look the part, whether you're into country-pop, punk rock, or heavy metal. Signature model acoustic guitars are special. Having an instrument designed with the specifications of your musical hero in mind will only serve to enhance your music making experience. With one of these guitars, you'll sound and look like a pro.
