Over John McGuire Guitars




Qguitars is ooit begonnen vanuit een hobby, namelijk het verzamelen van Valley Arts gitaren. Op het moment dat we er officieel wat mee wilden gaan doen (gebruikte preSamick modellen en nieuwe door Gibson gebouwde VA modellen verkopen) stopte Gibson met de productie .......... maar wat is het geval Qguitars gaat door met John Mcguire guitars....... inderdaad de zoon van !!  De samenwerking zal verder gaan dan alleen het distributeur zijn !!
Als je de gitaren ziet zal de afkomst duidelijk zijn . Dus houd de Qguitars.nl site en FaceBook https://www.facebook.com/qguitars in de gaten !
Het verhaal gaat gewoon door , de eerste zijn in  Europa.


John McGuire History

From being in a guitar manufacturing and music retail environment since he was in diapers, John McGuire has been around the block and has unique knowledge of what the high end clientele expect from their instruments. Growing and working side by side with his father, famed luthier Mike McGuire, you could imagine what John has learned from artists and his fathers attention to detail. John McGuire creates a serious state of the art, articulate, menacing, "go to" weapon for a player's arsenal.

John built his own guitar at the age of eleven out of scrap materials in his father's old shop in North Hollywood. Since then he caught the bug and followed along as his family moved to Nashiville, TN. He began to work at the Gibson Custom Shop after school at the age of sixteen cleaning up the shop. After high school, John went to school for CAD at ITT in Nashville, while still working at the Custom Shop in Final Assembly, and Shipping. He graduated in 1998. He then moved into the Engineering Department of the Custom Shop, where under the best of the best, he learned the true ins and outs of guitar building and CNC programming. John Then became the Special Project Manager where he was to oversee all kinds of special promotional and artist projects from start to finish. Throughout this time he also created some of the coolest instruments that are still in production!

In early 2004 John left Gibson's Custom Shop and moved to Boston, MA to work for First Act, Inc. He was their Production Manager of their custom. He took over the Custom Shop in 2007. Throughout this time he was able to work on some of the coolest things for artists. Doing whatever the artist wanted as difficult as you could imagine it was still very educational. He worked with some of the best luthiers in the FA Custom Shop and the experience shows in John McGuire Guitars!
