Using the same techniques as the ones employed in building classical guitars, Hart’s Guitars is excited to introduce its debut Classikulele!
In celebration of two years on this journey, I can think of no better way than to hit the publish button then go grab a spot on the couch with this beauty until it’s bedtime.
it has been a very strange gap between my last post and what I have to share today, which is a small gigantic milestone. I want to celebrate the fact that I’ve made 10 guitars.
…he took this beautiful instrument to show to his wife and kids: a Spruce top with Limba back and sides and a Brazilian Rosewood fretboard.
This is a comprehensive diy setup guide for acoustic and classical guitars.
In the shop, it was the beginning of guitar 008 but Jeff was student 001 at Hart’s Guitar’s School of Lutherie guitar building intensive.

A little about my guitar making philosophy….
My guitars are handmade, meticulously set up for maximum comfort for the player. I make classical guitars and classical-style guitars that don’t adhere to the strict rules of classical guitar aesthetics. My design is sometimes asymmetrical, the fingerboard is at times radiused, and mahogany and other tonewoods are used for the soundboard instead of always just staying with spruce. I do also love spruce!! I’m not trying to reinvent the classical guitar, I am simply creating something unique, not bound by strict orthodox. Under the hood the guitars are built using traditional and very sound building techniques that have been proven with time by the masters. That is non-negotiable. So, if you love the feel of nylon string guitars, but you want something a little different than the same old classical guitar look, then your search ends here. To be clear, as with spruce, I do love and I do also make traditional classical guitars, like the Francisco Gonzalez 1869 classic. I will also do custom orders for people who want to choose their own design and wood. If there is a guitar you want built let’s talk. I also make a “classikulele.”
- Hand crafted guitars from Avondale Estates, Atlanta, GA.
- Classes offered in guitar building.
- Workshops given on setup of the guitar.
- Lessons in guitar playing in keys and improvisation using the CAGED system to learn the fretboard.
