Luthier Dion James builds handmade acoustic guitars in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. His design style focuses on clean lines, minimalism, and serves to highlight the natural beauty of the tonewoods used.

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.
