About Us

We've been established in Austin, Texas since 2003, but that's not the beginning of the story..

John Allison has been building and repairing guitars and other instruments for nearly 35 years. Though a native Texan, John spent a number of years living in Colorado, Minnesota and Chicago, Illinois where he cultivated an interest in, trained for, and began a lifelong career as a luthier. He returned to Texas and he has been living and working in the Austin area since 1991. After an extended tenure with Collings Guitars, he resumed work on his own line of acoustic guitars as well as offering repair services and eventually expanding the product line to include electric guitars, lap and console steel guitars and ukuleles.
