Product Description

Iseman Guitars and Instruments was created in 2012 by Luthier Mark Iseman and Matthew Nigro in Honolulu, Hawai’i. They have a passion for music and instrument making and decided to start producing a commercial line of Koa Weissenborns. Due to their local access of Koa, they decided to use this wood for their Hawaiian instruments because of its great tonal qualities and natural beauty. They have made other percussion instruments like the African Tongue Drum and Clave sticks. In the future they plan to start commercially handmaking selmer maccaferri and typical steel string acoustic guitars.  Mark Iseman has been building instruments for over 10 years. He worked for National Resophonic in San Luis Obispo for over 5 years and 2 years at Kanilea Ukulele on Oahu. Throughought that time, he built electric guitars, dobros, pedal steels, and other instruments for himself and others. Iseman understands what it takes to produce quality, handmade  instruments on a commercial scale.

We are currently building Koa Weissenborn guitars. We are setting up to make selmer maccaferri and should have some available in two months.

Mark Iseman and Matthew Nigro have been playing music most of their lives. As a musician,  there is nothing greater in this world than to build your own instrument, and to have the ability to produce quality instruments for other musicians.

We primarily use Big Island Koa. We also like to use, Ebony, Rosewood, Padauk, and of course – spruce.

We accept Custom Orders, We have a warranty on all our instruments.
