Don Oriolo founded the Oriolo Guitar Company in 2010. Oriolo had worked in the music industry for most of his career as a musician, songwriter, producer and execuitve at music publishing companies. More recently Don has been the CEO of Felix the Cat Productions, Inc (his father is cartoonist Joe Oriolo -  creator of Casper the Freindly Ghost who also bought the rights to Felix the Cat). He brought his acoustic and electric guitar sketches to the Felix the Cat art department, who developed his concepts into finalised designs. Oriolo’s cartoonish and colorful designs – many of which featured a Felix theme were indtroduced at NAMM 2010. Since then the line up has been expanded with more conventional looking models including acoustic guitars and Kahuna ukuleles.
