Our Story

Around 2007, Tom Warner had a desire to begin building premier resophonic guitars for the "regular" folks that couldn't afford many of the top-level instruments at the time.  He developed a body design that put killer tone in the hands of anyone, at an affordable price.

Today, that tradition continues.  Even as we move into the next generation of Appalachian Guitars, we still strive to be the most "bang for the buck" in the world of resophonic guitars!  We're talking about guitars that no one will feel they are "settling" for, but guitars that not only sound great, but look great, too!
