Making a Munson Guitar is an enjoyable, yet complex journey from initial idea through to you plucking your first note. It’s the culmination of the efforts of our design and build team, along with raw materials, components and services from our carefully selected preferred partners.
We push the boundaries of what we can achieve from innovative guitar design. We work closely with our preferred partners to develop new parts in order to bring your ideas to life. By commissioning hand wound pickups and custom made electronic components, your guitar will sound fantastic and remain so for many years to come.
