There are no shortcuts in crafting the perfect guitar. That’s why we take the time to ensure that everything comes together just right to create a timeless instrument. We believe in conserving the classic guitar formulas that worked—and are still working today—but at the same time, perfect the imperfections that accompany many vintage instruments.
