Music and fashion have always been intimately intertwined, with designers and musicians trading influences and ethos since the dawn of rock and roll. That union was front-row during New York Fashion Week 2022, as iconoclastic brand Private Policy sent models down its runway toting Donner guitars from the Seeker Series DST line of electric guitars, demonstrating how cutting-edge culture has always been led by the marriage of style and substance. Donner guitars were the perfect partner to drive this point home, as a brand offering innovative, industry-leading instruments packed with features to thrill everyone from seasoned musicians to those picking up a guitar for the first time.
The collaboration with a cutting edge fashion brand wasn’t incidental: The NYFW show was part of Donner’s commitment to supporting new artists both in fashion and in music, by offering enjoyable, high-quality instruments to emerging young musicians with something to say. And because Donner recognizes that aesthetics help push the artist’s message, the brand makes guitars that are as eye-catching as they are well-crafted. Donner is shaking up the musical instrument space by making sure that the guitar reflects the values of the person playing it—and these guitars are cool enough to send down a catwalk at the biggest fashion event in the world.
Donner guitars are bringing music to the masses with the Seeker Series, which offer gorgeous, vintage-inspired bodies at an accessible price point. Beginners will love the Donner DST-152, an electric guitar that takes its inspiration from rock n’ roll legend, offering a stratocaster-like body and unparalleled rich tones. And because Donner guitars make their Beginner Kits available on Amazon, it’s never been easier to get everything you need to start your own musical journey (and look great doing it).
The DST-152 comes in a plethora of gorgeous colors, from the retro vibes of the Sunburst pattern to the chic and minimalist Polar White, and arrives with a slew of accessories including a vintage-style tuner and tuning pegs, an amplifier, a capo—even guitar picks—so that you can start playing right out of the box.
If you’re already a guitar whiz, the Donner DST-400 electric guitar, with a body crafted from first-class materials like lacquered Alder wood, may be more your speed. We love the Blossom Pink coloration, but whichever body color you pick, you’ll get the same innovative single-coil split system (for genre-spanning single-coil tones without volume loss) that have helped Donner guitars build their own fan base since they first stepped out on the scene a decade ago.
So whether you’re a seasoned pro or guitar-curious, the commitment of Donner guitars to craftsmanship, aesthetics, and accessibility make them the perfect addition to your next musical project. Your instrument should not only reflect the music you’re making, but the story you want to tell—and Donner guitars can help you tell it.
