"Find the guitar you left behind."

The California Guitars Story:

I got my first Fender guitar when I was about twelve
(a ‘63 tele custom) and though that guitar is long gone, it occupies a place in my imagination. As a builder, I focus on capturing the undeniable magic of the guitars of the ‘50s and early ‘60s. While each of our instruments is unique, our creative processes are largely informed by the legendary methods and artistry that have made those old guitars so desirable.
