handcrafted, heirloom quality guitars - down to the finest detail

Joe Hamilton 

I operate as a one man custom shop and strive to build each player the ultimate instrument specific to their desires. I spend a great deal of time with each customer getting to know their playing style and tonal expectations. Every aspect of the build is personally handcrafted. Absolutely no CNC, pre-fabricated necks or bodies - just a man with the two hands God gave me and an undying passion to create the instrument you'll never put down. 

As a one man operation, wait times are dependent upon the number of instruments in the shop. Turnaround is typically between 6-8 months.

"Mr. Joe Hamilton is one of a rare breed of artists who put so much love and soul into their work. Joe is a player, so he makes sure that his instruments are great to play. They are incredible! God bless you, Joe."

Scott "Natas" Oppenhagan

"Joe is an elite Luthier equal to the finest craftsman in the world. From the planning of each guitar to the selection of the wood for the body, neck, and fretboard. Everything is done to a perfectionist standard to create the guitar each customer has envisioned..."

Ernie Beckwith

"...This guitar feels like an old friend I've played for twenty years and really captures that old school vibe! I have it out of the case and on a stand and it's hard to walk by without picking it up. It's the one that inspires me to play!..."
