So excited about this guitar… This is an irisguitar DE-11 Dan Erlewine model and there is nothing else like it. Inspired by Dan’s 1930s Kalamazoo. V-shaped neck, Rickard rear-mount banjo tuning machines, an Adirondack spruce top, a satin finish, as well as Honduran mahogany back, sides, and neck. Most intriguing, its neck extends past the nut before transitioning into the ears of the peghead, and threaded brass inserts in the fingerboard accept screw-down capos. Available now!

THE IRIS GUITAR DAN ERLEWINE DE-11
Among the famous names in American guitar lore is Dan Erlewine – guitarist, builder, VG columnist and editorial consultant, and of course, world-class repair expert who literally wrote the book on the craft. Now he has partnered with Iris Guitar to bring to life a reimagined version of his personal favorite guitar – a 1937 Kalamazoo KG-11. #IrisGuitarDanErlewineDE11

Meeting The Godfather of American Lutherie, Dan Erlewine aka monsterfret He’s the first person to put guitar building and repair instructions on tape, making lutherie work accessible for everyone around the world, and he went on to design, prototype, build, and sell a very large portion and majority of tools I use today as a student luthier.
Are you a thrill-seeker? Do you embrace innovation and crave the unusual? The Iris DE-11 could be just what you need. This wee wonder, the signature model of legendary Dan Erlewine, gets all kind of crazy after you get past the classic pairing of Honduran Mahogany with Adirondack spruce — the banjo tuners are one thing, but the integrated capo system and extended neck-to-headstock transition mark this as a truly singular instrument, and it sounds fantastic, too.

The Velvet Bulldozer, that title doesn’t come without a reason. He was always the top class of the 3 kings sporting a suit with Flying V and in his later years a pair of aviators. Nobody can quite capture the sound he made with the out of phase and upside down wedge shaped guitar. And whether he was ripping on the 58’ Korina or the Dan Erlewine built “Lucy” you knew automatically it was him. We miss you, R.I.P. Albert King!...
Just found this one on my phone. My Stewmac compadres wrestling the neck off of a ‘42 D-45, with a special Maglite assist by Steve! #guitarrepair #martind45 #1942 #vintageguitar #acousticguitar #martinguitar #stewmac #heystewmac #danerlewine #toddsams #elliotjohnconry...
-Staff Pick Saturday-
Matt’s pick is the Iris Dan Erlewine DE-11 Sunburst acoustic. This model Dan’s first signature guitar, based on his beloved 1937 Kalamazoo KG-11. It features a 1930s V-shaped neck, Richard rear-mount banjo tuning machines, an Adirondack spruce top, a satin finish, as well as a Honduran Mahogany back, sides and neck. This guitar also has a really neat capo system that screws directly into the fretboard that we forgot to photograph. Whoops! This guitar really bulldozes the competition.

Introducing the new stewmac_guitar Neck Jig, now in operation at Arcus Guitars.
My old home built one was really a prototype with the intention of building a stronger one later on. I found I used the old one every week so the time came to make another, but with so many repairs in, I decided to buy the stewmac one, and I'm glad I did. Just look at it!! Its also super solid, so will do the job perfectly.
What's it do? It keeps the neck perfectly straight when levelling the board or frets and can simulate the tension of the strings, which is very helpful if you're dealing with a guitar with no truss.
I still need to find a permanent home for it, and will probably buy the matching vice and possibly stand for it, but they are currently out of the vice, so that'll have to wait a bit....
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.

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...
We can't let today go by without wishing the one…the only...Dan Erlewine (monsterfret) a very Happy Birthday. 🥳🎂
Talk about the OG...here's Dan playing a his '59 LP (the one he later traded to Mike Bloomfield) with his band the Prime Movers at the Filmore West. That night he opened for Electric Flag and Cream. 🤯
Happy birthday bud...hope you had a great day!
