Mark Doyle

This, in my humble opinion, is something that has been long overdue. I have been following Mark’s career for almost 40 years. He, without question, is considered to be one of the most prolific musical talents that has come from the CNY area. Until just a few weeks ago I have never had the pleasure to meet with Mark and talk guitars. Mark and I will collaborate on a signature series of guitars that we will make affordable and available to all you guitar players out there. It is truly an honor to have Mark as a player rep for Dishaw Guitars, not only is he a great musical talent, he is a genuinely nice guy and an easy hang. So go out and see Mark and the Maniacs play his Dishaw Custom Shop guitar and feel free to talk with him about what we have in store.Mark Doyle

Jerry Sullivan LP Custom

IMG_5176I meet Jerry several years ago at a NY billiard event. Jerry, in himself is an incredible tile craftsman, needless to say, we had a common ground and have become good friends, plus him buying a cue didn’t hurt at all. Over the years Jerry and I had the opportunity to trade crafts, he did some work for me and I did some work for him.IMG_5204 March 2012 my mother passed and was left with her home to get ready to place on the market. Jerry came in and gutted the bath room and retiled all the walls and the tub area, in addition to installing new tile floor in the kitchen. He also did a few things for me at my house, needless to say I was happy to make this guitar for all the incredible work he did for me. Jerry is a pool player, guitar player and golfer, my kind-a guy. I cant say enough about his integrity and the quality of his work. Jerry can be reached at 315-398-1547.

Terry Mulhauser Signature Series LP Junior

This Guitar was built around  a set of very old P-90 pickups that Terry had from an early 60’s Gibson. This guitar features the very same neck thru the body design that is a major part of the Dishaw Guitar Line. The hardware is from TonePro, with Grover tuners.

Terry Mulhauser signature series

A requirement for Terry was that the P-90 pickups had to be hard  fastened to the body which means there is no suspension mounting screws. These pickups are  bolted directly into the body producing incredible sustain and tone. This guitar is a screamer. mahogany body with vintage aged wine red finish.


Terry has been a life long friend and client, it is always a treat to see him come to the shop, plays a little and keeps me up to date on the music scene in CNY. For well over 40 years,Terry is one of the most respected and requested blues guitarist in the area.
