TK grew up in Los Angles where he would watch his father tinker in their garage with different vehicles. His grandfather was a mechanic that ran his own auto repair shop, so you could say working with his hands was in TK's blood. TK would go through many different occupations in his youth that helped him hone his skills as an elite fabricator and designer. TK eventually turned his attention to creating uniquely styled guitars which include beautifully hand-crafted components and he has become widely known as a premier guitar maker and designer.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and we try to represent the condition of all used and vintage guitars as accurately as possible in our listings. Every used guitar shows some signs of play wear and vintage models even more so. We call out all areas of damage or unusual wear, and describe the overall condition based upon what is "normal" for the age of the instrument. Expect to see minor dings, finish checking, or other evidence of normal use and aging which may not be captured by photography or explicitly mentioned in the listing.

We recognize that everyone has their own personal standard of what constitutes acceptable wear and tear. If play wear is especially critical for you, please contact us at the Shop for a complete in-hand description and to answer any questions you may have. Your satisfaction is of paramount importance to us.
