Richard Gordon “Rik” Emmett is a Canadian born musician and founded a band called Triumph which grew in worldwide fame from the late 1970’s through the 80’s and even still known by guitarists, rock fans and musicians around the globe.  They did a reunion gig in 2008 and part of the magic of that is captured in this guitar.  When I came across this guitar and saw it in person, I had to have it.  Then I played it!  For those of you that have seen my guitar collection pieces through the years, you have seen some of the wildest, rarest, kick-ass custom guitars on earth.  I collect the unique, wild and awesome stringed instruments I can find.  This is the 4th Rik Emmett I have had the pleasure of owning and one of the finer feeling necks.  This guitar MORE THAN Qualifies as rare, unique and World Class … Keep reading…


 



 


This auction is for my 2008 Dean Rik Emmett Signature USA Triumph V Guitar.  This is the 4th Rik I have owned.  I highest number I have owned was #23 and this is a lower serial number that I am offering up right here, right now.  Only 100 of these were made back in 2008 and they sold for just over $4000.00USD.  The last one I listed a few weeks ago sold in under three days and I was surprised at the very big worldwide response and emails I got from guitar fans around the globe.  I love the Ebay community. 


 


Don’t think this Dean Triumph V can hang with a USA Custom Shop Gibson Flying V or a world class Hamer V?  THINK AGAIN!  This Emmett model is like butter in your hands.  Very smooth, very fast and a pleasure to play.  This is World-Class Craftsmanship all the way, complete with Show Stopping Looks and Presence.  “WOW!!” is what you will say when you pop the case on this beauty.


 


It is rumored that Dean did not even make the 100 they originally set out to.  Personally, I have never seen one over #46.  I am not saying there is not a higher number, just that I have never seen one and people talk.  If you do own a Rik with a higher number, I would love to hear from you.


 


The guitar itself is DEAD MINT, EXCELLENT CONDITION.  I got this one from a fellow collector.   You will not find a single scratch, chip, dent, ding or blemish anywhere on this guitar.  


 


 


 


NO SCRATCHES!  NO CHIPS!!  NO DENTS!!! NO DINGS!!!!


 


 


 


NO CHIPS ON THE TRIUMPH V TIPS ! !  NO BUCKLE RASH ! ! !


 


Back in 1988, Dean built Rik the infamous white Triumph V just about any Rocker knows.  This is the re-creation in 2008.  Here is a bit of history on Triumph, Rik and the Triumph V from Dean’s Website:


 

"Rik Emmett was the front man and guitarist of the popular '80s Canadian based, 3 piece rock band, Triumph. Most of the band's hit songs were recorded and performed on Emmett's famous custom white, single pickup, Dean V. Rik is respected worldwide for his virtuoso playing, being one of the few rockers that is classically trained," said Dean Guitars founder, Dean B. Zelinsky.


The 2007 USA model is an exact replica of Emmett's early '80s custom Dean V. It features gold hardware, a single Dimarzio humbucker, and its trade mark volume only control setup. The 24 fret fingerboard, multi-ply binding, and a special input jack position also set this model apart from other Deans from this era.

"Emmett's popularity has an underground swell that is sure to make this guitar a very special release for Rik's fans and Dean Guitars," said Zelinsky.

Emmett, who is now getting back together with the members of Triumph for some special events planned in 2007, felt the timing was right for this model release.


 

The Rik Emmett Signature V is a limited run of only 100 guitars worldwide and is expected to sell out fast. Each guitar will be hand signed by Emmett and comes with a certificate of authenticity and an autographed photo of him, circa 1983, playing this famous guitar. The list price is $4,999 and includes a hardshell case.


Emmett signed with Dean in 1980 and played various Dean models, but it was Emmett's Dean V that became a synonymous symbol of Triumph, appearing on the cover of the band's biggest album, Allied Forces.

During Triumphs reign, Emmett was topping guitar magazine reader polls and became highly regarded as a monster player of all styles, not just the rock - a level of respect he still commands today.


In March of 2007, Emmett and Triumph will be inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame.

WHOEVER WINS THIS AUCTION WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.



 


 


The guitar itself is in MINT, COLLECTOR CONDITION.  Also included is everything photographed above.  The original Dean HardShell Case, which weighs about 100 pounds.  I’m not kidding, this case is insanely heavy—WITHOUT THE GUITAR IN IT!! Original Case, Original Certificate of Authenticity and Hand Signed by Rik Emmett, his photo of the Dean USA Promotional ad.  You can see the serial number on the rear of the headstock, on the neck and on the Certificate.  For those die hards out there like me, the rear headstock is STAMPED WITH THE SERIAL NUMBER AND “MADE IN THE USA” INTO THE WOOD!   Ohh yes, See Rik’s signature on the rear headstock in Gold Ink?? That’s real ink.  Rik personally signed and numbered these---This is a nice low number for ya.. for privacy purposes, only the winner will get to know the number of this one.  It is one of the first 25.


 


Here is a nugget of information about these Rik’s.  I took a photo of the rear neck above.  Notice there is a gray-ish area under the lacquer down part of the side neck on the rear.  This is a mark present on every RE V I have seen and if you search the forums, you will find it mentioned.  I want to mention it so any new owner will not be surprised.  It was identical on two of the V's I had and also present on the other two I have owned and is a characteristic of the guitar.


 


This guitar has never seen a barroom stage or a stadium tour, but let me assure you it is a wild, unique and STUPID RARE Guitar.  Please contact me with any questions and I will answer them to the best of my ability.  I work fairly with any serious buyer.  I am not a guitar dealer or retailer.  I am an un-curable guitar-a-holic.  Ebay allows 12 photographs.  If you would like to see any other parts of this guitar, please contact me with YOUR EMAIL address and I will send you more photographs.
