Company Summary

We use injection-molded composites to construct guitars which are lighter, more resonant, more durable, and lower maintenance than traditional construction. Our building methods create a very high quality, versatile instrument at a modest cost. Our guitars are environmentally friendly since they can be made with recycled materials, and utilize minimal wood (and no exotic hardwoods). We can build each guitar to order very efficiently.
