Thanks for visiting Hill Country Lutherie!

In the beginning was the wood and wood was from God…





I primarily build finely crafted Steel string acoustic guitars. but I have and will build flat-top fiddles, violins, and mandolins. I’m happy to build with any high-quality tonewoods, but I often feature Native Texas Mesquite and various reclaimed woods in my guitars.







sj100-thMesquite back and sides with soundboards of recycled Longleaf Yellow Pine is a combination that makes a very full, well balanced sounding guitar. I call it my Lone Star Edition. I’m also using other woods native to the Texas Hill Country. Cypress for top and Hill Country Mountain Cedar for the back and sides make a nice combination which I call the Hill Country Edition. Take a look and give me a call if you have any questions. If you are looking for something unique in a great sounding guitar, I would be honored to custom build a one of a kind guitar for you.
