What is Born Guitars all about?

Born GuitarsTM is founded around a passion for music and a desire to inspire you with exceptional guitars and accessories. Playing a guitar that is tailored to you can make a tremendous difference. Our #1 priority is for our guitars to inspire you to make amazing music.  Whether you are a professional guitarist, in a bar band, dedicated hobbyist or a guitar collector, you will love the way your guitar feels and sounds because it is made just for you out of the best materials and components on the market.

Born GuitarsTM are designed and built with one goal in mind – enable you to play and create better music. Reach new limits with a custom made guitar designed with your unique tastes and preferences built into the instrument itself.  We want your inspiration and the tone you imagine in your head to effortlessly flow onto the fretboard and out through your speakers.  These are custom instruments that you can’t find on the wall of your local guitar store.

Born GuitarsTM was found in 2011 after years of planning, designing, prototyping and collecting extensive feedback from musicians.


“Building guitars for me is about hearing how much my customers love their guitars. Turning rare pieces of wood into someone’s dream guitar is really special.  It’s an honor to think that each guitar I build will be in people’s family for generations.”
-J Miller
