WHO WE ARE

My career has touched on most facets of the music industry. I have been a song writer, educator, student, performer, technical producer, singer, composer, technician, consultant, lecturer, player, fan, author, equipment designer, and inventor. I have been blessed and fortunate that my passion for music also was able to become my livelihood. Since 1994, I have served many thousands of customers through my home based business, Wild Dutch’s Guitar Hospital.  During that time period, I developed unique, and pioneering techniques and methods to increase the sustain, gain, tone, musicality, and to reduce the noise of my customers’ instruments and equipment. Innovative Guitar Products is the culmination of decades of experience of meeting and exceeding customer’s expectations. Logically, the next step in this evolution is to bring these advances to you.

THE ACOUSTA SYSTEM - MY STORY

The raw, organic, harmonic tone of an acoustic guitar is possibly my most favorite musical sound in the world. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sound of a blazing electric guitar ripping through a full stack, but even that tone has its fundamental roots in the good old traditional acoustic guitar. Certainly, that natural, fundamental interaction between wood, strings, and fingers, has a unique, musical personality.  Even an “electric” guitar is still fundamentally an “acoustic” instrument. It is from this observation of the acoustic nature of instruments, and even speakers, that has formed the basis of most of my research and work. The question to me always has been “How organic can the instrument sound, in its most basic state, even unplugged?” With the Acousta Peg System, I was able to extend my reach into sonic heaven. Everything I loved about an acoustic guitar was magnified; everything I did not like was reduced, or eliminated. The tone, sustain, volume, and frequency response were all dramatically, and noticeably improved instantly. The “improved musicality” of the instrument was immediately apparent. The string balance and harmonic content were almost “three-dimensional”.  Very impressive, very inspiring!

I have installed hundreds of sets of Acousta Peg System pins on my customers’, band mates’ and my own personal guitars over the years- no failures, no returns, no disappointments! Every acoustic guitar on the first Verve Daddy album Ain’t My Street, was equipped with them.

Interview, 9/1/1999 Euphony Magazine

By Bonita Berger

Whilst winding my way around the Powemad venue, I came across an interesting sight/site…proclaiming WILD DUTCH’S GUITAR HOSPITAL, in large letters and featuring all manner of esoteric guitar parts (of which I confess total ignorance). Manned by a very laid back critter with a HUGE smile, fronted by a shiny red guitar with a sign proclaiming “try me”….if both women and journalist’s possess large reservoirs of curiosity, and I am both…this was sure bait.

A bit of investigation uncovered a couple of useful “Wild Dutch” books and something called a tremelo bar, which meant nothing to me but was the cause of serious salivation by my guitarist friends at the show. Taking their enthusiasm for a north star, I spent a few minutes at various times during the marathon two days I was at the show. Taking their enthusiasm for a north star, I spent a few minutes at various times during the marathon two days I was at Powermad watching the magician at this display tenderly labor over some damn fine guitars (it turned out every musician in the place who could, was eager to take advantage of the opportunity so happily encountered). My journalistic nose quivered. I could stand it no longer. A quiet moment arrived, I pounced. And John Boehnlein, aka Wilddutch got himself interviewed.
