  This guitar is what launched my career in guitar building.  One evening back in 1992, I attended a local open mic and brought my guitar.  This was the first guitar I ever built.  After playing my set I was approached by a gentleman that asked me what kind of guitar I was playing I went onto to tell him that this is the guitar that I built. 

  He was very impressed with the sound of my guitar and asked me to build him one just like it.  I told him I never made a guitar on commission however, I would be happy to.   The rest is  history and that is how I got my start.  This guitar remains in my personal collection.

Thank You!  For considering Gordon Guitar's
