You can’t ignore a good top on a guitar, its the first thing people see when you open the case and its always facing the crowd while you’re out gigging.  Everyday we focus on the tops, but not today; today we want to show you some of the best backs in the game. These are just a few of the guitars we are privileged to work on each day here in our Maryland factory - each one crafted with care and attention to detail. Enjoy!
