I built and sold my first guitar in 1983 to Andy Summers, lead guitarist of "The Police".
In 1992, I traveled to England and met with Beatle George Harrison and Rock-n-Roll Legend
Carl Perkins and they loved my work. Here is a quote from a George Harrison interview in the
July `96 issue of Musician Magazine - "I like his guitar a lot. He's just a small manufacturer,
but it's a very, very well made instrument and he does it all himself." I Couldn't ask for more
praise from someone so well respected in the music business as one of the Beatles! Plus he used one
of my guitars in the recording and video of the Beatles song titled "Real Love"(from the cd "Beatles
I work specifically for artists that are ready for that unique guitar built just for them and their
needs. The customer calls all the shots and I hand shape each guitar neck for each customer. All my
guitars are one of a kind. Besides offering my own designs, I also offer those popular designs you are
already familiar with. Of course, your own design is welcome.
All Designs are available in solid or semi acoustic versions. My guitars are built in 6, 9 and 12
string models. Every HAMBURGuitar is delivered already "set up" with good action, calibrated with
your favorite string gauge ready to roll!
I personally guarantee every guitar I build to be the highest quality you would expect in a hand
crafted instrument. Again, thank you for your interest and I will look forward to hearing from you!
