Unique Handmade Instruments by the World's Best Luthiers

About Us

A commentary about handmade guitars by Paramount's own Kenn Fox

...Being a professional player myself for over 30 years, I understand both the frustration and the joy of the search for the right instrument...
...It always surprises me how many potential customers call not knowing that there are many handmade guitars available for the same or less than factory-made alternatives....


Our goal is to provide our customers with the best quality handmade guitars available in the world today. We have selected builders who we believe provide the highest quality craftsmanship and the most unique design options for the best price. We are constantly refining our lineup and adding new builders as they become known to us. All instruments in our inventory are custom built to our specs. Many of the builders we represent have a wait time of six to eighteen months, but we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to buy these instruments off our showroom floor.

We try to provide a well-rounded selection of body styles and options by each builder so that you can buy hand-made custom instruments without the wait.

Our state-of-the-art, custom designed showroom is available to you by appointment, 7 days a week. This environment provides the very best acoustics to demo our inventory, allowing you to find the instrument that is truly right for you. If a trip to our showroom is not practical we are pleased to offer a no risk 48-hour approval period on all instruments we ship.

We invite the opportunity to work with you. Custom orders and trades are always welcome!
