Information: 

Danny Ferrington worked in his father's cabinet making work shop while still in high school. As a guitar, banjo & pedal steel player he learned instrument making & repairs with Randy Wood at The Old Time Pickin' Parlour when he moved to Nashville in 1975. He built several guitars for celebrities and became well known for making acoustic guitars shaped like electrics, with unusual shapes/colors or necks that played like electric guitars. These acoustics were ideal for rock musicians unused to playing traditional style acoustic guitars and for acoustic players who wanted something different. This opened up a whole new market for Ferrington who travelled to the UK in the late 1970s before moving to California in 1980. Ferrington designed an electro-acoustic range for Kramer starting in 1985-1986. These Kramer Ferringtons were mostly made in Korea and endorsed by the likes of Eddie Van Halen and Dweezil Zappa.
