Grateful Guitars Luthiery is a full service luthiery shop. It is our philosophy to give you the highest quality in craftsmanship at a competitive price.

Handcrafted Instruments

You have the choice to choose from an already finished stock model instrument; or, a completely custom instrument made to your specifications. When choosing a completely custom instrument, contact us for an appointment, and we will sit with you to design and incorporate your needs and wishes in order to make this your dream instrument. Whichever route you choose, you can be assured the instrument is entirely handcrafted using the finest woods and components available. All of the instruments we build come with a limited lifetime guarantee to the original owner against faulty workmanship and defects in material.. As always, the guarantee does not cover normal wear and tear or instrument abuse.


Our shop is a fully equipped woodworking shop and we have the equipment and knowhow to deal with whatever repairs you require. We do need to physically inspect the instrument in order to give an accurate assessment of what work needs to be done and give an accurate estimate of the cost to you. So whether it’s a minor adjustment or a full blown restoration, contact us to set up an appointment.  All work is guaranteed..

Custom Work

Custom work is certainly one of our loves. Whether you are looking for a customized part such as a wood pickguard or a one of a kind truss rod cover to an inlaid fingerboard or carved heel, contact us. We will sit down with you to get your input as to what you are looking for. If it is for an existing instrument, we would need to physically see the instrument to make sure the custom work is feasible.
