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 Automation had superseded craftsmanship in all but the most expensive models. Ultimately, 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. Where our guitars are assembled is only part of the story. The quality of the wood we can deliver to our artisans depends on relationships we've built with wood lots in Bolivia, Western Canada, New York and Gabon.
