The acoustic alchemist shares the secrets to his massive, multi-dimensional tones.

Mike Dawes’ main guitar is this signature model built by Andreas Cuntz. It features an Indian rosewood back and sides, 38-year-old sitka spruce top, ebony fingerboard, Indian rosewood rosette, and quilted maple binding. There’s a 44 mm spacing at nut, 55 mm at bridge and Gotoh 510 tuners. Dawes strings up this guitar with a set of D’Addario Nickel Bronze strings (.013–.056). Throughout a show Dawes will tune on the fly to a variety of tunings.
