Divided by so many glorious guitar sounds over the years, I needed an instrument to realize my musical calling without the need to change instruments on stage.
Necessity being the mother of invention. I designed the Dickson DN-2 in 2006 and handcrafted the instrument with Hideko in Tokyo that same year.
My goal was to design a Hollow body, Twin neck guitar that combines elements of arch top jazz guitar construction with elements of classical guitar construction allowing me the option of switching from a Jazz sound to a Spanish sound or a library of synthesized sounds within a piece of music via a simple flick of a switch.
I sincerely hope I have been able to create sounds I wouldn't have found with traditional guitars and thus introduce myself directly to previously unexplored musical horizons.
