Our Mission:

Art is anything that is done well”. This has been our motto from the very beginning and has become how we judge our operations every single day. We are committed to innovation while paying proper respect to the tradition and heritage of these unique instruments. Our success depends on our ability to enrich our guitars via positive changes to enhance tone, playability, and beauty. 

With this, we push ourselves to create art for the artists- building the best instruments possible to help you achieve your guitar dream!

The Story Begins With A Tree...

We use a variety of tonewoods from around the world. Every piece of lumber has been properly dried, seasoned, and acclimated to ensure your guitar plays and sounds its absolute best at all times and in all climates.

Strength, Comfort, Quality

The neck profile is key in creating a playable guitar. Properly dried woods provide both strength and sustain, while the neck shape provides a comfortable playing surface so that you can rock ‘n’ roll all night!

Finishing it Up

When working with some of the finest woods on the planet, it’s paramount that we not upset the wood’s natural resonance with a thick finish. Not only do our finishes go on super thin (around 1.5 human hairs thick to be precise) they gas off over time to become even thinner and allow more of the natural resonance of the wood to come through.

The Little Things

All of our hardware is left up to the experts. The companies we partner with have spent years honing their craft to produce the best hardware possible, all of which is rigorously tested and approved by our team before going into production instruments.

Creating the Sound

In a nutshell, a pickup is designed to “pick up” the vibration of the strings and convert it into an electrical current. Everything from the bobbins, to the magnet, to the wire affect the overall tone and how it interacts with the amp. All of our pickups are carefully crafted to enhance your guitar’s sound- not dictate it. 

From Our Hands To Yours...

An instrument is much more than the sum of its parts. Our team consists of not only experienced luthiers but every day players as well. We’ve spent tens of thousands of hours creating a product we’re proud to produce right here in our Mesa, AZ shop.
