William's Profile

About


I build one guitar at a time focusing on quality rather than quantity. Each guitar is designed slightly diifferent from the next with attention to detail and accuracy. I really enjoy the sound of old blues music and try to build guitars that can reproduce that historic and iconic sound of the Mississippi delta guitar. I was born in Memphis, Tennessee and grew up listening to these sounds as well as bluegrass music on Sunday mornings. These guitars are more than just cool one of a kind conversation pieces; they are a representation of a time and era of America's past.
You can spend thousands of dollars on a store bought guitar which will play beautiful but how many other people will also own that same guitar. These are custom built with cigar boxes from local shops handpicked by me searching through countless boxes finding that special one for the next build. Thanks for checking out the shop and email…

Favorite materials

Old and repurposed cigar and wine boxes, red oak, maple, mohagony and rosewood, as well as vintage artwork, I like to use old boards and resurface them and give them new life in an instrument
