- acoustic guitars
In the early 1960s Paul Berger, then a cabinet-maker, went to work for C.F. Martin and Company in his native Nazareth, Pennsylvania. In 1972, due to poor lung health, Berger decided to leave Martin for central Florida and its more agreeable climate. Once in Florida he began building and selling his own high-end acoustic guitars. Berger made around 10 to 12 guitars a year, and his customers included Aerosmith and the Eagles. Paul Berger died just shy of his 80th birthday in 2015 after over 50 years as a guitar maker, leaving many wonderful instruments.
