About Dodge Guitars
||Dodge Guitar Founder, Rick Dodge, has over 35 years of experience starting in 1975 as an Apprentice to Guitar Builder Paris Banchetti in Miami, Florida. As an apprentice, Rick mastered instrument building and repair, including steel string guitars, classical guitars, violins, cellos, and the viola de gamba. As a young person, it was in this apprenticeship that he learned the use of hand tools as taught by an expert and developed a sense of professionalism in master woodworking wherein excellence in all creation, fabrication and repair work is paramount. In 1995, based on Rick's patented design of modular electric guitar, the Dodge Guitar Company was founded in Tallahassee, Florida. As owner and president, Rick personally developed instrument design and prototypes, and entered into limited and exclusive production of Dodge Guitars.
