Wire Instruments guitars and basses are designed and built in the U.S.A. employing top shelf components, with one eye on history and the other on contemporary guitar design. Our guitars use time tested tone woods and hardware from a range of independent shops.
Each instrument begins with a sonic concept followed by artistic vision. Guitar building is an ongoing process of discovery, and we strive to make our instruments as comfortable as a lifelong friend. Each Wire Instruments guitar is individually crafted one at a time, so no two are the same.
