"The Dailys have superior sustain, clarity, brilliance, and volume--a combination that is difficult to find in one instrument." --Andrew York, Los Angeles Guitar Quartet
"My guitar has a wonderful response, the basses are deep, rich and loud without overpowering the trebles... his guitars are amazing." --Evan Hirchelman, guitarist annd composer
"I get nonstop compliments about my David Daily guitar in every competition." --Alieksey Vianna, Brazilian virtuoso
"The Daily is quite simply the best guitar in the world." --Ernesto Tamayo, Cuban concert guitarist
It goes on and on...the praises for David Daily's instruments from some of the best performers in the world.
And no wonder why. David is simply one of the most talented luthiers in America, or anywhere else for that matter.
I'm happy to say that I've just acquired a new David Daily guitar! It is every bit as beautiful sounding as any of the considerable number of David's guitars that I've carried over the years. Everyone who tried those guitars knew immediately that they had a great instrument in their hands, an instrument full of vibrant life. This guitar is powerful with a deep sonorous voice. In short, another great instrument.
