Vernon Reid


Vernon Reid is an English-born American guitarist, songwriter, composer, and bandleader. Best known as the founder and primary songwriter of the rock band Living Colour, Reid was named No. 66 on Rolling Stone magazine's 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, although he was not included on the revised 2011 list.  Reid continues to play lead guitar for the infamous LC rock ensemble and maintains a status as one of the world’s most respected guitarists by millions of fans and players alike.

Critic Steve Huey writes, "[Reid's] rampant eclecticism encompasses everything from heavy metal and punk to funk, R&B and avant-garde jazz, and his anarchic, lightning-fast solos have become something of a hallmark as well."  He has the chops that most guitarists can only dream of obtaining in their lifetime.  In 2017 Vernon became an official member of the D&A Guitar Gear family of endorsing musicians.  We are proud and grateful to have him aboard!
