Running Dog Guitars

Luthier Website


Rick Davis has been crafting Running Dog guitars since 1992, completing more than 225 guitars for clients from the famous to the obscure. Running Dog owners include Paul Asbell, Dennis Cahill, Julian Lage, Arty McGlynn, and Danny O’Keefe. Rick served as Director of the Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans and as editor of “Guitarmaker” magazine. He and partner Cat Fox now build and repair guitars and teach lutherie in Seattle and Italy.

Each Running Dog Guitar is built to delight an individual player, not an anonymous average. The choice of woods and features, of appearance and ornamentation — and of course of tonal properties! — are a collaboration between builder and player, establishing a personal connection to the instrument that lasts years beyond its delivery.
