Rod Abernethy

Artist of the Month | December 2015


You’ve heard this story many times… the one about “I’ve tried them all.” But I’ve tried most all pickup systems for acoustic guitar and I’ve never heard my guitars sound more natural than with K&K.

Both of my stage Taylors have Trinity Pro systems installed and it’s the best investment I’ve ever made in my rig. Thank you Dieter and all the folks at K&K for bringing out the true sound of my guitars on stage!

Composer and musician Rod Abernethy has been playing in the Carolinas for more than three decades, writing original songs and instrumentals on 6 and 12 string acoustic guitar in the styles of Leo Kottke, Bob Dylan, Nick Drake and Loudon Wainwright to name a few. He has a strong history in the North Carolina music scene, reaching back to his days as a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter in the band Arrogance, which also included legendary performer and producer Don Dixon. His award winning scores for broadcast and video games have earned him numerous accolades and international success, but these days Rod is getting back to his acoustic roots performing songs that he loves as shown in these candid videos recorded around the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area of North Carolina.
