- electric guitars
Banker electric guitars are made by Matt Hughes in Georgia, USA. Banker Custom Guitars was founded in 2016 with the aim to recapture the magic of vintage Gibson electric guitars, using old school American Craftsmanship. As far as possible they build their instruments with the methods, hand tools and power tools from the 1950s golden era of electric guitars. Their necks are hand carved with rasps and spokeshaves. Matt Hughes was the first boutique builder to officially sign on with Gibson as part of the authorized partner program. This means Banker guitars can legally use Gibson trademarks, body shapes, and headstocks.
