Congratulations and Welcome!

    You've just arrived at GMW Guitarworks. Take some time to browse and look around our new web site. We constantly will be updating it with our latest projects, so visit us as often as you like. We specialize in building custom guitars. Numerous examples of each are provided within the archive pages of this web site.

    Clients from all over the world, including some of yesterday and today's biggest artists, continue to use our services. We provided custom paint and refinishing work for over 20 years. Our graphic services are supplied by the same world renowned graphic artists whose work has been featured on instruments and in catalogs from Jackson, Schecter, ESP, Ibanez, Yamaha, Zion, Tom Anderson, B.C.Rich, Samick/Valley Arts and Fender just to name a few.

    Our custom guitars cover a huge diversity of tastes and interests, so just phone or fax us. We offer a wide variety of options in both our GMW and EMPIRE guitar lines so the customer always can get that special combination to make the instrument their own. We also carry a huge supply of figured woods (e.g., quilt, flame maple) for those of you who require a more traditional natural wood body. Note that we build both bolt-on and neck-thru-body instruments.

    We also build  on a "per-order basis only" for the very discerning and discriminate customer who wants something above and beyond the ordinary (at a fraction of the usual cost associated with similar custom instruments).

    Have fun browsing through our web site and don't hesitate to call us with questions or comments. Our business hours, phone number, email address and physical address are provided below.
