Our Signature Archtops honor both our tradition of building handcrafted instruments and the artists and luthiers who put their names on them. There’s no greater honor than being trusted to build guitars that meet the standards of legends like John Pisano or master builders like Ryan Thorell.
The passion evident in John’s playing extends to his attention to detail for the instruments that bear his name. From the voicing of the pickups, to the choice of carved and laminate tonewoods that make up these fine instruments, his involvement in every step of the production leads to guitars that possess not only the look, but the sound & feel worthy of this iconic musician.
More wood, more sound. Our solid wood archtops create a deep resonance and inviting warmth that makes them irresistible to jazzers of all backgrounds and styles.
Our handcrafted solid body guitars pay tribute to traditional build methods and body styles while delivering a balanced and refined tone.
All of our instruments are built in workshops in Beijing by an expert team of luthiers and craftsmen.
