Ron Belanger started making guitars in 1998, following many years of wood working, both in carpentry and cabinet making. Belanger drew on advice and tips from friends like the master builder Grit Laskin when building his first guitar. His school was the workbench and his learning was supported by research both on the Internet (particularly the Musical Instrument Makers’ Forum) and master works such as “Guitar Making: Tradition and Technology” by William Cumpiano and Jonathon Natelson. Ron Belanger now offers a variety of stringed instruments. In addition to the 6 and 12 string acoustic guitars he also hand builds  Irish Bouzoukis, Resonator Guitars, and Hawaiian Lap-Steel Guitars. All guitars have many options to choose from and many additional upgrades including specialty wood and pick-ups.
