Default Build Thread: Incoming from Kostal Guitars



One of the great parts of our job here at The North American Guitar is working alongside our luthiers and spec'ing out jawdropping guitars (it's a hard job but someones got to do it) and doing this with superstar luthier Jason Kostal is not only incredibly exciting but a lot of fun.

The thing we have always admired about Jason from the first moment we started working alongside him back in 2010 was his drive and dedication for perfection in his instruments. His passion for his craft and ability to create guitars that move the world is nothing short of superhuman!

Every single instrument built by Jason starts with a vision; a tonal concept of where the guitar is going to go and what it is going to be 'great' at...and this all starts with the woods...which is where the fun begins! Jason (being Jason) has one of the most outstanding wood collections in the world, so the sky is the limit when searching for 'that tone' in your head.

Here is Jason to tell us what we have coming into The North American Guitar in 2019!

ENJOY...
