Epoch (ee-pok) - A particular period of history, especially one considered remarkable or noteworthy.
The Epoch, designed with Nashville based guitarist Daniel Donato, may look traditional on the outside but inside its distinctively DGN. Featuring Semi-Hollow Construction, this guitar was created to bridge the gap between Country and Jam music, aka Cosmic Country. The body is constructed with the tried and true DGN recipe of a Spanish Cedar back and a Maple top. The neck is one piece highly flamed maple with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard.
Rounding out the Epoch is a lineup of hardware from the best manufacturers today. The Bridge, Control Plate and Neck Plate are all from VanDyke-Harms. The Tuners, Nut and String Tree are all from Graphtech Guitar Labs.
“It’s an Epochal guitar. I rarely switch them and they define a period in my life. And hopefully the same goes for the players that own one.”
