The mission of Lawrence Guitars is to build a quality, sturdily built guitar that should last any player a lifetime and with normal use and care could be passed on as a family heirloom.
We focus on quality of the build, not quantity or speed. We use mostly hardwoods from the Appalachian Region of the Eastern United States as well imported exotic woods as needed or when called for. High quality hardware and parts are always installed in our instruments. We also build our own magnetic pickups in order to achieve the best tone possible.
In addition to finding our instruments online and at select shops, you may run into us displaying samples of our available inventory at fairs and festivals around, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. Check out our inventory on this website to find the merchandise that we have available at any given time.
I am a one man operation. I build one guitar at a time so each and every guitar will be different from the last. I start building each guitar with a style in mind and work on that one until completion. Depending upon the style I can usually build one or two guitars per month.
I started building guitars in 2005 in my studio in Kansas City, Missouri and have been improving and innovating ever since.
