In this video from Fender, Ron Emory talks about his signature Loyalty dreadnought saying:
We took all the elements from my '68 Palomino, the stuff that I liked that I had designed for my original acoustic that they made for my band, for T.S.O.L, and we took that and made an ash body acoustic, which I don't know if that's a good thing or not, but it sure sounds good and looks cool. We took the pick guard off the Palomino, the bridge, and we got this big sweeping grain of ash on the body, which is very cool, very different. There's not another guitar out there like this one. It's got a big sound. Again, it's built structurally like a very expensive guitar. We wanted this guitar to come in around the $300 price range and we got real close to it, I think. It's a full size guitar, you know and it's finished beautifully. It's got all the vintage vibe and looks of a cool old guitar. We wanted to have all these gold accents and the vintage '60s logo, mid '60s logo and with the butterscotch finish. It's a nice sounding, feeling, looking guitar.

In this video from Fender, Ron Emory speaks on his signature parlor guitar saying:
There's not a whole lot of cool small guitars out there for young ones, and being that I'm a guitar player it was important for me to have something that was this nice for my students to play around on and learn on. Structurally, it's built like a really nice guitar. It's got X-bracing, it's got tapered braces in it. The price point was very very important. We wanted to make sure that everybody that wants to have one of these in in their hands can have on in their hands. This guitar is very important to me that the design of it structurally and the finish on it is really incredible. I wanted a small sized guitar that was reminiscent of the guitars you saw at the turn of the century. There was a lot of small bodied guitars but they had an incredible feel and incredible sound and so when we designed this guitar I wanted it to have that feel and that vibe but I also wanted for kids to have something that is cool looking and feeling and sounding. So we went with this herringbone motif which is around the whole body and binding around the neck and the headstock. We did the loyalty because I'm loyal to Fender. I really felt that it was something I needed to put on there, you know, being that where I had been in my life it was God that got me through what I gone through, so loyal to him as well and loyal to my family.
