Players

We are not just builders, we are players. We love vintage guitars from the 50's and 60's for their tone and authenticity.

Simplicity

We want to strip away all the things that get in the way of artistic expression. Let us build you a tool you could not do without.

Philosophy

In order of importance: 1.Sound, 2.Feel, 3.Vibe. Below are the things we think we are offering that not too many builders are. We make guitars that are undeniably hand made and personal. Every guitar shop is full of perfect guitars with limited soul and sterile feel. Our goal is to make you a family heirloom.

Thick Necks

We believe, through years of playing all types of guitars, the key to great tone starts with a thick neck. It produces a fullness to high notes and a growl to lower. Our necks are surprisingly comfortable because they make full contact with your hand and not just between your thumb and fingertip.

old low ohm pickups

We buy old low ohm pickups to put in our guitars. They force the amp to work harder and produce a wider range of dynamics when you did your pick or finger in. One pickup and 50's LP Jr. wiring is the most direct and true sound going into your pedals or amp.

Very thin Laquer

Violin players have known for years that an instrument must breath to age and open up the tone. We have a proprietary finish that is soft to the touch and degrades quickly picking up all your wear marks like a great pair of jeans. We love the way old guitar finishes crack and breakdown. Here's a new way put your personal stamp on your guitar without waiting 30 years.

We are a guitar start-up

Stay tuned in the next few months for our Kickstarter. We are looking to get 20 preorders to get ourselves into our own shop and buy some of the more expensive specialty tools. We want people to be able to afford a custom hand built guitar so we are pricing the guitars at $1599 for the campaign. Thanks for reading this far and drop us a line at electrovibrato@gmail.com
