What does a Custom Guitar mean to you?
Now that is a question to sink your teeth into and plenty has been expressed about this topic prior to me asking. Well, I am not sure about you, but for me Custom Guitars come from a love of Music, a love of Guitars and a love of being able to envision an instrument where none was before...then going about the process of planning, crafting and testing until you get it just right! It is by no means an easy task and requires mastering many other disciplines. One must have an understanding of Wood / Glue / Metal / Plastics / Electronics / Acoustics / Balance / Style as well as Guitar History and Technology... We Guitarists are certainly a strange breed and I must admit that I think it takes a guitarist (or in this case.. a bunch of Guitarists) to pull this off. Personally, I played and lived guitars for more than 30 years before I put my thoughts down on paper. Being formally trained in Architecture, it was a perfect fit and prepared me for the journey ahead. It has been a true labor of love the entire time. I will be the first to tell you that none of this was done in a vacuum.. I have a team of very talented guys without whom I would be really stuck. All of us put our collective talents together to produce some of the most Magical Guitars I have ever had the pleasure to play. So come on in and enjoy as we invite you all into the Passion and Love that is Classic TONE Guitars! Thank You, Joe
