Introducing Dion Guitars

We are delighted to welcome Dion Guitars to our roster of acoustic luthiers and are excited to bring his incredible instruments into our showrooms.
Dion James is a one-man team, creating sensational guitars out of his workshop in Canada. We first met Dion at the Boutique Guitar Showcase in 2018, and having kept in close contact since, we are now thrilled to be announcing this alliance and the gorgeous guitars which we will be bringing into TNAG.

Dion bases his craft upon the belief that the beauty of the acoustic guitar lies in the instrument's essential function and that it should inspire use as well as admiration, therefore despite the ability and freedom to customise his designs, his art is rooted in this core belief. There is an intention to reveal the natural appeal of the raw material. Dion Guitars focuses on crisp lines, balanced shape and tasteful pairings of wood, engaging the hand, ears and eyes.
 
This No. 4 model has an Italian Spruce top and quilted maple back, sides, and fingerboard. This combination makes for a beautifully unique guitar, with a bold and punchy tone. Maple has a shimmering clarity and a quick note decay that separate it from the more commonly used mahogany and rosewood backed guitars.
