This Hallmark Deke Dickerson Model Two in Candy Red Sparkle is in on trade. It is in great shape. It is clean, cosmetically and it is fully functioning. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned, and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case. The back of the headstock is autographed though I am not 100% sure who by (it could be easily removed). This is the coolest looking guitar in the shop, we all agree! From the Candy Red Sparkle to the German Carved Top, and NOS Mosrite pickup surrounds, this thing is covered in cool, Daddio!
In keeping with the theme of the Deke Dickerson signature we introduced years ago that rivaled Joe Maphis's famous double-neck, this all-new Deke Dickerson "Model Two" has the key components but has shed its skin of the ultra-fancy gingerbread components for two very important reasons. We had inquiries from guys who could not afford the Deke 1 and also some who did not want all the ultra-fancy components for their every day go-to guitar, but wanted the sound and play of that guitar. Later I saw the video of Don Rich playing with Buck Owens with a Mosrite Semie Moseley guitar specially built for Don in 1968. It had the same shape and a tone chamber just like our last Deke Model 1, with a Mosrite/Dobro pickups and an "F" hole and a larger pickguard. A light went off in my head and I immediately thought...... Deke Dickerson Model Two!! I contacted Deke and he loved the vision as well. One of Deke's requirements was no "F" hole, so that was taken out of the design. I was able to locate a box of NOS Mosrite/ Dobro pickup surrounds in storage out in Bakersfield Ca. (flipped me out) just for this new project which gives the guitar the exact look while retaining the key ingredients of our JM-6 Pickup. The rest is now Hallmark history!!
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, cleaning, restring and set up before being put out on sale. We even put guitars with bad frets through our Plek machine if need be. If this service piques your interest learn more here or give us a call!
