I’ve been a guitar player since age 13 and have a long history of woodworking, from furniture to cedar strip ocean kayaks. In 2002 these passions joined together as I built my first guitar. Since then I have been able to develop my designs and methods by working with some very talented craftsmen and a number of master luthiers. Having an idea go to plans and on to being in hand is a great joy for me. I build each guitar with attention to design, sound, ease of play, and even smell. I’d like you to feel the familiarity of an old friend when you purchase a Hatcher Guitar.
