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.

Music Industry Conference

Dishaw Guitar Studio will provide free all day clinics for those who attend the Music Industry Conference (MIC). The event will be held on Nov. 11-12 at the downtown OnCenter. My son and I are CNY natives and  well known for expertise in manufacturing of electric guitars as well as restoration of string instruments and factory authorized service.

Instruments require time and dedication to learn how to play, and if your instrument is not set up properly it becomes a much more difficult task.  Bring your electric/acoustic guitars, bass guitar, banjo, mandolins or any string instrument that you play and we will show you how to get the most from your instrument.

We can show you how to install your strings correctly and explain how the truss rod affects the action or playability of your instrument. We will describe and walk you through all the adjustments made to your instrument so that it plays effortlessly through the entire length of the fingerboard. Not only will we set the string action, but we will also have a high precision Peterson strobe tuner as well to set the bridge saddles and intonate the scale length.

There will be a big screen monitor with a slide show of the shop and some of our manufacturing techniques, including Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Machining (CAM). There will also be a select few of our guitars for sale with an amp to demo. Guitar parts, strings and accessories will be available for purchase.

For the cost of admission you will get a professional setup on your own instrument or you can just stop by and we can just show you how it’s done.

Guitar League’s November 12th main presenter

Main presenter: Dan Dishaw   Monday   November 12  click on image to get directions.

The say that what goes around comes around.; our November presenter has come to know the circular nature of life.  Dan Dishaw is a well-known name in the central New York region as a first rate luthier and guitar tech.   For years and years, area musicians went to him for all their guitar needs.
However, in the past few years he has been using his luthier skills in the Billiard industry. His company has been designing and building billiard cues that are considered as highly collectable pieces of art. The Smithsonian Museum recently has as recognized the modern day billiard cue as a new art form and asked a select few cue makers from the US to submit their work for a future display. Very cool to have your artwork at the Smithsonian.
Dan’s son, Peter, recently graduated from Potsdam’s Crane School of Music, with a music business marketing degree, and expressed an interest in building guitars. So Dan is now pretty much back to where he came from.
The Dishaws are building guitars for high-profile players such as Mark Kendall of Great White, Kyle Bolden with Stevie Wonder, Chet Catallo formerly of Spyro Gyra and six time Grammy nominee;  local players such as Ben Mauro with Lionel Ritchie, Terry Mulhauser, Bill Hatch, in addition to other local players.
Dan was the guitar tech at Gerber Music in Shopping-town Mall in Dewitt. There he became an Authorized Warranty Service Center for over 15 major manufactures such as; Gibson/Epiphone, Fender, Ibanez, Guild, Martin, Ovation, etc. In addition, he was responsible for the maintenance and setup for all the instruments for all three Gerber Music locations in CNY.
Dan was invited to several manufacturing facilities for Service Seminars where he was taught the correct procedures to accomplish quality repairs and service on instruments such as Gibson Super400, Les Paul's, Fender Stratocasters, and Telecasters, and Gibson/Epiphone  acoustics, etc.
Dan is considered a Master Luthier with 40 years of experience and training in the repair, service and restoration of all types of string instruments.
Dan is very excited to be back in the music scene here in CNY welcomes the opportunity to speak to Guitar League. He wants it to be clear that he is not a player as such and his primary objective would be to inform us about service, repairs and restorations to any type of string instrument and about building custom instruments.
