Jim Triggs started out building mandolins in the Midwest and on the West Coast of the USA. He went to work for the Gibson Custom Shop in 1986 where he helped return the famous F5 model to its vintage specifications. At Gibson he also supervised the Custom Shop and also worked in artist relations in Nashville. Triggs left Gibson in 1992 to build guitars on his own as a "one man custom shop" in Lawrence, Kansas. In 2004 he was joined by his son Ryan and the pair continue to build custom instruments one at a time.
