Spencer Acoustics is a one man guitar shop that specializes in handmade acoustic guitars. I use only the best materials and time proven techniques to create each one of my guitars. I typically focus on 6 string acoustic electric guitars and baritone guitars but I can build most any kind of acoustic stringed instrument. I also teach people how to build guitars here in my shop.

Why buy a handmade guitar?
Handmade guitars are completely different than mass produced factory guitars. They have to be. In order for a factory to make a mass produced guitar, of average price, they have to use the cheapest materials, cheapest labor, and cheapest methods of construction. Most of their guitars are not even made in the USA. It must look good and play ok but no real effort is made to get the best sound. I take the exact opposite approach. My first priority is to build an awesome sounding guitar. To do that I must use the best materials, the best electronics and hardware, and use the best methods of construction.
Build your own handmade acoustic guitar
Ok, so now you know handmade guitars are the best sounding guitars but you don't want to spend $4000 and up to get one. I know how you feel. That's exactly why I started building them in the first place. I wanted a great guitar but at my skill level of playing I could not justify the cost to purchase one so I built my own! You can too! I can help you build your very own guitar, in MY shop using MY tools and MY experience will guarantee YOUR success!
