Ed Gerhard Signature Guitars

The journey of the Ed Gerhard Signature Model Dreadnought begins with Ed’s music and personality. For decades the Grammy Award-winning guitarist has entertained audiences worldwide, combining his inimitable technique with his equally inspiring compositions and sense of humor. Since getting his first guitar at age 14, Ed has been crafting his own unique sound, impressing critics and listeners alike across his acclaimed studio and live albums. Known for his gorgeous tone and compositional depth, Gerhard can move a listener with a single note. Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe said it best when he wrote “Gerhard does not write instrumentals. He writes songs only a guitar can sing.”

Whether his precise, yet lush sound conveys classic sensibilities or inflections of blues, he gracefully imparts his own distinctive touch. Ed’s agility on his instrument shines through on every tune. With this spirit, Ed came to Bend to talk tone, wood and construction as well as the other, ethereal qualities that make a guitar truly special. From those discussions with Breedlove craftspeople came the Ed Gerhard Signature Model, a guitar with a Distinctively Crafted Sound that’s on par with the music of the man whose name it bears.
