Why I Make Classical Guitars and Why You Should Buy One of My Guitars

The finest guitars are made by individual craftsmen, not by factories.

Wilson, I love the guitar.

The craftsmanship is truly evident in the depth and character of tone, I am more aware of my tone property.

It makes me want to play even more than usual, because it sounds so good.

The last time a guitar made me feel like that was when I was playing Alex Kommodore's $10,000 John Gilbert guitar.

Thanks.

Thank you, James, for those kind words!

I hope your new guitar will help you with your musical career.

This is the guitar that James purchased from me, it has a Sitka spruce top...

If you want to see a video of Stephen Valeriano playing this guitar, go to the right hand side of this blog, scroll down to the second photo of a guitar and click on the photo.

My goal as a guitar maker is simple - to make the most responsive, beautifully voiced guitar possible, a guitar that you fall in love with so much you never want to stop playing it.

Current base price for one of my guitars is $4500.

If you are interested in purchasing a guitar from me or placing an order for a custom model, please contact me at highcountrylutherie@gmail.com
