Homestead Guitars started to build a signature guitar for Dutch singer-songwriter Danny Vera. This guitar is built entirely to the desired specifications of Danny Vera. This jumbo model will be finished in nitrocellulose lacquer. The letter “V” is stylistically processed in various places (fingerboard, bridge, headstock, see the impression below). The solid woods are, as usual at Homestead: Adirondack AAA for the top, Javanese rosewood for the sides and back, Makassar ebony for the fingerboard and Mahogany for the neck. The consumer price will be around € 2.895,– including hard case and VAT. The Danny Vera signature guitar can also be ordered in an OM variant. It is specially built for guitarists who think a jumbo is too big. This signature guitar is available from the end of September at Homestead and at Bax-shop.

On Sunday 18 November, the famous Belarusian guitarist Vladimir Tkachenko (Владимир Ткаченко) tried a Homestead guitar. He was so enthusiastic that he immediately ordered a guitar: a Grand Auditorium model with cutaway. The well-known Belarusian composer Andrey Kostiugov (Андрей Костюгов) also ordered the same day a Homestead Grand Auditorium.
On November 14 a presentation of Homestead took place in Minsk (Belarus). Several professional guitarists (among them Sergey Antishin/Сергей Антишин and Leonid Shirin/Леонид Ширин) have tried the Homestead and were very enthusiastic. Here plays Sergey Antishin, the first guitarist of the Belarusian State Orchestra, on the Homestead. His reaction: “Super, what a sustain”.
