ABOUT THE GUITARS

    
Zuni Custom Guitars are some of the finest hand made guitars available.  Only the finest woods and materials are put into these guitars.  Michael Blank after having cut and sold instrument wood for over 25 years to many companies including Gibson met Thomas Stratmann, one of the finest accomplished builders of custom guitars as well as an instructor in guitar fabrication from Hannover Germany.  Together they put their technical knowledge, wood knowledge and artistry to bring you the romance and vision of Zuni Custom Guitars.  All Zuni Guitars are hand crafted with only the finest exhibition grade woods available.  Specializing in the beautiful figured maples of North America such as Birdseye, Fiddleback, Curly, Spalted and Quilted.
     All Maple woods have been personally harvested from the woods to the log to the guitar by the owners.  Many pieces one of a kind in nature.  Some woods have been cut and air dried for over 25 years.  Some of the body wood for these guitars were cut during the 1860's during the civil war.  The guitars that you see are samples that show the artistry, beauty and craftsmanship of their design.  We feel these are some of the finest electric guitars built.  Each one having it's own unique sound with the marriage of individual pieces of wood and their own personally hand wtapped pick ups that are done in their shops.  All knobs, tuners, switches and nuts are made from natural deer and elk antler.  All hardware is gold plated and is the best schaller has to offer.  Zuni Guitars are truly a piece of art.
     Zuni Guitars can be had with your own custom matching of the woods or as we build them to our specs and matching of the woods.  Woods can either be viewed at our locations, on our web site or by your personal request.  All guitars come with your choice of two individual sets of unique Zuni inlays.  Also available are two special exhibition inlays which can be special ordered.  Zuni Guitars are truly a thing of beauty with exceptional exhibition grade wood, superior craftsmanship and incredible sound.  Each with it's own individual character and sound. 
     We feel that Zuni Guitars are some of the "Best of the Best" hand made guitars which are truly custom in every detail in the music industry.
