I am completely enamored with Wylie Guitars. Sublime archtops!

How about Scott Walker Guitars?!

Jol Dantzig

There are plenty more where those came from. Keep ’em coming!

Cimarron guitars, Ridgeway, CO


Starr Guitars in Orlando Fl does amazing work. Incredible attention to detail.

Jol, thank you for including me in your list. You say what so many of us are thinking, and eloquently.


You couldn't have listed those alphabetically? ;-)


Great list! I'd like to add Cilia Guitars from Sydney Australia.

Jol Dantzig

There are so many more... c’mon!

Thanks so much for including M-tone Guitars of Portland Oregon in your list. We're a very small shop - Matt designs and makes all the guitars himself, and I handle the website and bookkeeping.

Your observations about the business of guitars definitely rings a bell. Here's hoping that consumers grow more aware of the differences between a large name brand made offshore by machine, and small builders who do everything themselves, from wood selection to final setup.
