YOUR MUSICAL FINGERPRINT
The goal of Driftwood Guitars is to get to know every customer that commissions a piece in order to build a truly custom instrument. One that not only looks like the guitar they have been dreaming of, but also feels and sounds far greater than anything mass produced or purchased from production line.
"I help guide every client through the build process, encouraging their feedback during every step of designing their custom instrument."
- Chris Alvarado
AS UNIQUE AS THE PLAYER
The instrument that Driftwood Guitars was founded upon, our acoustic guitars are some of the finest in the world. The handmade quality of these bespoke instruments is evident in every aspect of their design. Each guitar is individually handcrafted with a specific client in mind. From its hand voiced tonal fingerprint, ergonomic specifications, tone wood selections, and the custom designed and handmade inlays, each guitar becomes the physical manifestation of each new owner's life story and musical desires.
AN ARCHTOP LIKE NO OTHER
Looking to bridge the gap between an acoustic guitar and a solid body electric, our archtop guitars provide a sound that is unmatched in anything available from a factory. Both an acoustic instrument, as well as an electric, these amazing guitars fill the void in any guitar collectors lineup.
THE DA VINCI MODEL
Innovation in the field of lutherie has always been a driving principle of Driftwood Guitars. To that end, the Da Vinci model is the culmination of over a decade of research and development in acoustic guitar construction and design. This unique instrument pushes the boundaries of what is sonically possible from an acoustic instrument.
