Dan Erlewine & Bryan Galloup 

In the early 70’s Dan Erlewine built custom guitars for iconic guitarist that molded the sound of American pop culture. These one of a kind instruments were made to the specifications of the performers that was unique in style and sound.

Decades later Bryan Galloup joined Dan in his shop as an apprentice and together they continued building and repairing guitars in the Erlewine tradition.

Now three decades later, Dan and Bryan have re-teamed to reproduce two of these iconic instruments, the Albert King “V” and the Jerry Garcia Stratishcaster. All tone woods are sonically tested through Bryan’s patented Instrument Making Software™ to ensure these instruments not only look the same, the player will experience the same feel, weight and response of the original instruments.”

Three decades later, Dan monsterfret and Bryan have re-teamed to reproduce Albert King’s iconic V, “Lucy”. To ensure these instruments not only look and feel the same, Dan used the last of his original Lucy wood to build one for joebonamassa and myself. Very happy to be a part of Dan and Alberts legacy.

This special irisguitar DE-11 Dan Erlewine model is a little different than a standard DE-11. It is still inspired by Dan’s 1937 Kalamazoo KG-11 but this guitar does not have the built in capo system, extended headstock and banjo style tuners of the standard DE-11. A great choice for players looking for vintage vibe and tones in a guitar with modern playability! Spruce over mahogany. Available now. Contact shawn@staygoldguitars.com if you have any questions.

In 2022, Dan Erlewine’s “Guitar Rx” column walked readers through a class-project guitar build by Ceil Thompson. It’s the epitome of custom-made cool, and here she uses it to play one of rock’s greatest melodies for VG followers, accompanied by Dan on the Iris DE-11 profiled in his January ’22 column. Read how Ceil finished the build in the December issue. Watch the entire video by clicking the Link in our bio and then “Ceil Thompson” on our homepage.

I still can’t believe that I have worked with Dan Erlewine for two days!! We all brought up with his magazine column and his books, his videos. This is so amazing! I am so fortunate🙏❤️🙏

Thanks again stewmac_guitar for having me & your caring hospitality. Looking forward to seeing videos that we made together. I am glad that I could visit Dan’s shop too!

Here’s a fun throwback from November of 2002. This was taken after my first one-on-one weekend workshop with Dan. Little did I know at the time, my career path would change within the following year and I’d be moving to Athens. Hard to believe this was almost 19 years ago! #guitarrepair #guitarshop #tbt #stratocaster #stadiumguitar #danerlewine #stewmac #luthier #luthiery ...

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I love doing fret work. I especially love re-fretting a guitar you forgot actually used to shred cuz it’s been borderline unplayable for so long. Just lifeless and unenjoyable to play because you loved it too hard for so long… Frets so low you can barely bend strings, lifting/loose frets that kill sustain/tone or deep indents near the nut area from destroying parties with drunken cowboy chord covers.

I’m a fan of the sound a well seated, glued in fret offers vs one that was just hammered or pressed in raw. There is something harmonious that happens after filling every void between fret tang and slot. Here's an excerpt from a Stew-Mac "Trade Secrets" newsletter: "Try this yourself: Glue a fret or two, then tap a bone nut blank on one of them. Listen to the sound. Now tap an unglued fret. The glued frets create a fuller sound that actually vibrates through the neck. You can see how this translates to better overall tone."

Do you think gluing frets makes a difference? Do you prefer to save your glue for sniffing?? What are some good glues I should be sniffing or fretting with? Help me out here, I’m ready to party.
