Where are your guitars made?

Almost 15 years ago, we began looking for a workshop that could produce world-class guitars with a significant amount of handwork. We quickly ruled out North America. Automation had superseded craftsmanship in all but the most expensive models. In the end, we were fortunate to discover a small violin workshop in southern China that still practiced hand craftsmanship. It took a few years of trial and error to recalibrate to acoustic guitars, but the effort was rewarded with Tofino, introduced in 2010, followed by one great guitar after another. Two years ago we relocated our artisans to a village in the north where the climate is similar to that of North America.

An Important Note Regarding Porch Pirates

When we ship a guitar we always send it with instructions to the courier that a signature MUST be obtained at the time of delivery. If no one is home to sign for the carton, it will not be left. We do this to ensure that your guitar does not fall into the hands of porch pirates (or other nefarious characters such as bass players or drummers).
