" Thanks so much. I'll definitely be living with this baby among some of my fave acoustics...and Yes!, its got a unique place in there" Kurt Vile
“Dillard Guitars go far beyond any zeitgeist of trend or whatever happens to be en vogue at the moment. There’s a timeless and classic nature to his approach, his technique and his results. I’ve seen, played and recorded on several different models over the years and all over the world. After recording several tracks with one of his parlour style guitars on a recent project I finally was able to purchase one of my own. Throughout the design and build process, the clarity and transparency in communication, professionalism and the extreme attention to fine detail make Dillard a true gem in the realm of bespoke instruments in the world today. His guitars are objects of undeniable beauty and totems of an intimate craft that will not only stand the test of time for their aesthetic features but also implore and spark creativity at every turn with its beholder. They are nearly impossible to put down once you’ve felt and heard their distinct voice.”

"I'm privileged to own Dillard Guitar #4 (2009), a steel-string parlor with custom headstock & sound hole inlay and a beautiful owl-eyed illusion in the wood grain on the back side. I've taken it along to several memorable living room concerts and fireside drinking sessions, and almost every time I do someone will ask how old it is, thinking it has to be pre-1950 ; such is its warm resonance and shimmery tone. Definitely one of very few truly prized possessions in my home".
