Don Musser made his first guitar in 1976 - it ended up with actor Peter Fonda and his second one was bought by Tom Rush. Although he studied chemistry in university, his early success in guitar making led Musser to a career in luthiery. Musser also had a keen eye for high-end tonewood and his main business was selling wood to other luthiers. The very best timber was reserved for his own instruments - high-end acoustic guitars in  dreadnought, orchestra, parlor, classical and jumbo styles.  In 2003 he relocated from Colorado to Silver City, New Mexico. By 2006 he had made 250 guitars and counted Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Bono and Eddie Van Halen amongst his customers.
