     Welcome to kentuckyguitars. Very affordable. These guitars are as traditional as it gets. All handcarved from local lumberyard materials. Nothing is prefabed,could be the most all crafted guitars available.Fretwire and tuning machines are almost the only prefabed parts.
   We are new, established 1-2011 in Glasgow KY. Brian has over 20 years of luthier experience.
Each guitar has it own magic character and great sound. One would have to purchase 5 from those expensive factory guitars to get a good one. Many customers have big dollar guitars that now collect dust.
