The guitar is a rounded-corner take on the classic V design with custom options

Powder Springs, GA (August 11, 2011) -- Delaney Guitars unveiled its newest guitar, the “Wedge” while exhibiting at Summer NAMM in Nashville, Tennessee. The Wedge joins the Jagata, Sonoita, Bisbee, Big Sky, Arlen Roth Signature, Matt “Guitar” Murphy Signature and Big City Bass models in the Delaney Guitars lineup.

"The Wedge is our take-off on the traditional “V” design paying homage to the time-honored design while modernizing it and adding the familiar Delaney touches of fine woods, state- of-the-art electronics and hardware, and old school finishes," said Mike Delaney, owner of Delaney Guitars. "This project has been a lot of fun working on design ideas from one of my oldest friends, Philip Culp. With Philip’s help, we put together a beautiful guitar with hints of tradition but with a modern vibe,” Delaney added.

The Wedge guitar has a choice of mahogany, korina (limba), or swamp ash body with or without an exotic top; a choice of maple/rosewood, korina/ebony, or mahogany/ebony neck with a soft "C" neck profile; choice of humbucker pickups; Hipshot hardtail or grand piano bridge; Hipshot locking tuners; master volume and tone; and a three way switch.

The guitar will retail starting at $2,175.00.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
