Rock Candy Special
Artists who play this guitar:
"I am a Daisy Rock lover! All my guitars are Daisy Rock. They look cool and feel so comfortable in my hands. And they give me the professional sound that I need when I am performing with my band."
"Why aren't all guitars made like this!"
Why do I love playing Daisy Rock? Why wouldn't I? I have the smallest hands in the world. Seriously, I haven't met one full grown human being with hands smaller than mine. This caused major problems with my guitar playing. When I presented my issue to a salesman at Guitar Center he immediately suggested Daisy Rock. I was hesitant at first, but I decided to plug in the Rock Candy Special and now I'm obsessed. This is coming from a girl who knows guitars and owns Gibsons, Paul Reed Smiths and Fenders. They have a full sound that just rings, are lightweight, have small necks and look great. There is nothing like them!

"We love our Daisy Rock guitars. Both the Rock Candy Special electric and the Wildwood Artist acoustic-electric are so light and easy to play. The quality of the acoustic pick up and pre-amp is incredible and the tone, when miced through the system, is crystal clear and full. Adding these guitars has enhanced the quality of our equipment and the quality of our live sound."

My name is Brady Mosher, and I'm a journeyman guitarist for hire of long standing in the DFW area, making Fort Worth my home for the last six years. I've always been a pretty much behind the scenes chameleon type of player, but I've got an excellent reputation regionally and you could ask Wojo or Andy Timmons about me, or any number of session players and producers on the DFW scene.
I had never given a second thought to a Daisy Rock guitar until yesterday, when I was looking for a backup guitar for my Charlie's "Reo Palm Isle" (Charlie Wirz and Renée Martinez built it for me in 1984/85 - I got it a couple of weeks before Charlie died). It's been beat to death over the years and been through quite a few pickup configurations, but it's always been my favorite to play and gets a great chunky tone with 3 DiMarzio Q100's. It needs to have a fret job and some minor other repairs and I realized that a week without it was gonna leave me short on "beef" so...
I ended up sitting in the Arlington Guitar center vintage room for 5 hours yesterday playing almost every guitar with 2 Humbuckers or 2 P90's and a single volume control near the bridge through the same Matchless Clubman 30 amp. The Rock Candy Special sounded and played better than most everything else I tried and equal to some very nice Gibson Les Paul's and PRS 22's. I'm not a girl - although I occasionally take a bubble bath - but I ended up buying the Rock Candy Special and a Retro-H, and I love them! They will both get a workout on an upcoming project for Annagrey and will get plenty of attention, I'm sure.
I've never inquired about an endorsement before, but if you need a guy that's a serious guitarist to show that these are not just "girl guitars”, give me a holler!

My name is Dale Pierce. I'm 47. I play country pop for money and psychedelic jam for fun. What do I own? The essentials.... 56 goldtop, 72 thinline, Eric Johnson strat, and more. Recently at my local guitar center I picked up a Rock Candy "Dark Star". Couldn't put it down. Walked out of the store with it. What else can i say? Been using it at gigs without a backup. It's crazy how much I love this guitar. It's crazy how much better it is than guitars three times it price. Just wanted you to know.

I love this guitar!
