NAMM 2022: With the unveiling of its intelligent DMI Smart Guitar, three new DST series electric guitars, and the headless, travel-friendly Hush-I Silent guitar, Donner turned more than a few heads at this year's NAMM show.
Also drawing attention was the company's 2022 Rising-G Pro, its newest foray into carbon fiber technology.
With its sleek, futuristic "barrel" design – in part comprising Japanese T700 carbon fiber panels, a three-piece neck with an HPL (high-pressure laminate) fingerboard, and a parametric soundhole – the Rising-G Pro was a must-see at the show, so see it we did at Donner's NAMM booth.
There, we got the low down on the model, which was designed – with the help of Donner's proprietary bracing system – to possess the resonance and frequency range of luxury guitars far beyond its modest price range.
Described by Donner as "very low-maintenance," the Rising-G Pro was built to be a travel-friendly alternative to more finicky and delicate wood-based acoustics. It will be available – in acoustic and acoustic-electric iterations – starting in early July, though its price has yet to be revealed as of press time.
