My name is Jason Willard.
I have been a woodworker for around 30 years now and have built fine furniture, cabinets, tables and chairs. I have also worked in commercial production shops, where I designed and built unique pieces with great attention to detail.
But, life is short and I’ve decided it’s time to pursue my real passion which is building guitars. My love for guitars started a long time ago and was inspired and fueled by my friends candy apple red Fender Stratocaster.
It sparked my imagination, It was a visual, tactile and auditory experience, it was cool it, was fun, it was friendship, it was power at your fingertips, it was the lines and color. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about in your own way. As time went on and I embraced wood working I knew I had to build guitars. Because guitars have such unlimited design potential, I can use my imagination and problem solving skills to build unique guitars that satisfy my creative needs.
My approach to crafting instruments is simple…
My goal is to build a remarkable, high quality guitar we can both be proud of and which you will love to play for the rest of your life! Though they may cost a bit more than a commercial brand and you may have to wait a little longer for it, this is only because of the many hours I spend designing and crafting your instrument. If you know anything about how custom guitars are built, you’ll know this is the exact opposite of store bought cookie cutter commercial brands (most of which are made in overseas countries by underpaid and uninterested workers), whereas mine are handcrafted entirely by myself from shaping and contouring the body and neck to installing the electronics, so that every guitar becomes a unique piece of art which allows you to express your personality and skill as a musician.
(NOTE: Certain custom options will incur additional costs depending on your requirements.)
So if you’re ready to ignite your creativity and success as an artist then let’s get started immediately.
