Pre-War Guitars came about because of their mutual deep passion for the magical tone of 1930s-era acoustic guitars. Although they had trod varying paths in building and repair, they soon discovered they shared a penchant for meticulous examination and documentation of these classic instruments. The next logical step was to bring this accumulated knowledge to bear on the luthier’s bench. The result are one-of-a-kind handmade guitars with a sound, look, and playability like no other.
Triple-o sized instruments fit in with any type of music. If you flatpick and fingerpick, do solo and ensemble gigs, as well as being on the quest for perfect volume, tone, and size, then look no further.
We inspect each and every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
