Frank Helsley founded Republic Guitars in 2007 as an affordable modern resonator brand, in the town of Rowlett just outside of Dallas Texas. In 2009 Helsley came up with the Highway 61, a travel-sized guitar with a single cut-away. The Republic range covers both classic single-cone and tri-cone models. In August 2013 Republic Guitars relocated to Austin. To keep prices affordable Republic Guitars are imported.
