More about Ron Emory "Loyalty" Slope Shoulder Dreadnought

Longtime T.S.O.L. guitarist Ron Emory has infused some truly distinctive Fender acoustic guitars with his years of SoCal-punk cred and expertise. Among the latest and greatest is the new Ron Emory “Loyalty” Slope-Shoulder Dreadnought, in which he has combined his favorite features from several guitars in his large collection to create a stylish and eminently affordable model.

The Ron Emory “Loyalty” Slope-Shoulder Dreadnought is available in two versions—one with a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck and a vintage-style sunburst finish reminiscent of the 1930s; the other with an all-ash body, maple neck and butterscotch-stain finish resembling his ’52 Telecaster. Both versions feature quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing, elegant herringbone body binding and rosette, soft “V” neck profile and aged neck binding, rosewood fingerboard with diamond inlays and 12th-fret “Loyalty” logo, 20 large vintage-style frets, 1970s-style Fender headstock, three-ply pickguard, vintage-style rosewood “Viking" bridge with Graphtech® Nubone™ compensated saddle, open-gear tuners, and Fishman® Isys III pickup/active preamp system with built-in chromatic tuner, on/off switch, three-band EQ and volume control.
