Product Description

We are a family business of brothers and sons who come from generations of master craftsmen. We Love music and all things guitar. This started years ago as a hobby and guitar making soon consumed us.  After getting so much positive feedback about what we build we started building full time and gigging with them ourselves,  we started making them to sell. We have been inspired by the great music of the South and the strong traditions of Rock Roll.  The designs are images we see in any given piece of wood. Each piece of wood  is selected and chosen by hand for its unique character. As master wood maker, I take pride in bringing my sons into the business making product that I love. Together we make great playing guitars with unique designs and go Gig when we are done for the day.

We have many more guitars in the works. But we can build your perfect guitar. Just submit an order and we will get back to with how long it will take to build and cost.  If you have favorite hardware or electronics we can put those in there as well. We chose the electronics we have because they are my personal favorites.

We’ve taken our skills and applied them to the art of making guitars… Making the guitars was just as enjoyable as gigging with them. Music and making guitars is are our passion and it shows in our work. We take pride in our gear and hope that you’ll find something you like.  We are conscience of sustainability and our products are made from sustainable sources. The Rattlesnake guitar is made from the finest American wood, with some other exotic woods where we need them, and real sustainable harvested rattlesnake rattles and skins.

All our guitars come with a satisfaction guaranteed
