This very special DS15 Tirga Mhor will be the 150th Taran guitar!
We teased out some photos of this one in a previous blog, but it deserves a whole spread for itself. Special reserve Brazilian rosewood, Adirondack spruce top, gold leaf gilded lining, 1985 Lotus Burr walnut veneer...this is shaping up to be a real knock-out guitar both tonally and aesthetically. Check out the series of progress photos below.
"The Dowling Signature’s are a series of my guitars which celebrate my fifteen years of guitar making expertise and allow me to propel tonal and aesthetic developments.
Each instrument is meticulously hand-crafted and uniquely detailed in my workshop in the beautiful East Neuk of Fife. The Signature’s use the finest materials that I have coveted over the years, accompanied with sonic developments I have made alongside some of the worlds best musicians. This makes a Dowling Signature truly world-class in every aspect."
