Craftsmanship- Not Salesmanship


John A. Thayer’s training in the field of Luthiery began through self-taught experience, creating several electric guitars as a teenager. In 2002 John attended the Roberto Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix, Arizona. During that time he created two electric and two acoustic guitars. John spent additional time at Roberto Venn as an assistant to Robert Mazzullo, one of the past instructors at the school. As an assistant he continued his education through hands on experience by building additional guitars and completing a variety of guitar repairs. John went on to work under the guidance of world-renowned master luthier, Ervin Somogyi in Oakland, California. Ervin helped refine Johns understanding of soundboard voicing and guitar construction techniques. Now located in Bremerton, Washington John maintains a thriving business around guitar repair and restoration, and building a limited number of handcrafted acoustic and electric guitars.       -Established in 2004
