Charles Whitfill grew up in rural Kentucky and worked as a machinist on leaving school. He worked his way up from the shop floor eventually becoming a manager in the company. His next job was overseeing production of wooden wine barrels before he finally put his precision machining and wood working experience to use as a custom guitar maker. Whitfill guitars, typically tele or strat style electrics, have steadily grown in popularity and have been used by Jack Pearson, Brent Mason, Johnny Hiland and Vince Gill.
