Quality guitars from a top notch home grown company. These folks are so invested in the community and our future that they have a guitar building program in one of the local high schools.

Great tour, great to see where my babies (4 and counting) come from. You get a real insight in how the guitars are made, plenty of time for questions and the staff know just about everything!
