Handmade Acoustic Guitars
Copyright © 2012 Dubois Guitars All Rights Reserved
At the age of 14, you might say I started my interest in lutherie by making a replacement solid body ( teardrop shaped ) for my cheap jewelry store electric guitar. More crude examples shortly followed. Five or so years later in 1971, I attempted my first acoustic guitar following Irving Sloane's book, "Classical Guitar Construction". That guitar was never completed, which is probably a good thing. I still have the remains of that guitar and keep them as a reminder that there is no substitute for knowledge, experience and having the correct tools for the job.
In 1999, after all those years of building houses, circular staircases, custom cabinetry and furniture, the desire returned to make fine acoustic guitars and this time with a passion that I had not experienced with any of my other specialty work.
I currently offer two models, a Small Jumbo and a Grand Concert size but would also enjoy working with you to design and build your personalized instrument.
Thanks for visiting.
