Scott Ackley learned the art of woodworking from his father and inherited a love of music from his grandfather.  Growing up in Portland, Oregon he spent many happy days in his father's workshop as well as countless hours pursuing his interest of playing guitar, piano and harmonica. In 1979 these two passions coalesced when Scott finished building his first acoustic guitar.  His creativity and enthusiasm soon led him to design and build electric guitars as well. For many years Scott built guitars for only family and friends.  However, his guitars generated so much interest he has been persuaded to offer his guitars to the public.
