- acoustic guitars
Ken Savage has many years experience as a wood worker: first constructing custom homes, then as a shipwright building sailboats, and then ran his own highly successful fine furniture business. Ken built his first guitar for himself. With his background in fine woodworking, his first effort was a guitar he continues to use in performances. Soon, fellow musicians were noticing his Savage guitar and asking him to build guitars for them. Word of Ken's high quality guitars spread quickly, and he found himself building a reputation as a serious luthier with requests for guitars from all over the country. Savage Guitars offers four acoustic models: 00, Dreadnought, Grand Auditorium and 000. Ken customizes neck width and action to suit each customer. The hand-carved neck is fastened to the body with a dovetail joint. All guitars are finished with nitrocellulose lacquer & and custom options are available for wood choice, cutaway, hardware and inlays.
