Rudolph Wurlitzer established his company in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1853. Wurlitzer originally imported stringed, woodwind and brass instruments from Germany for resale in the U.S.. In 1880 the company began making pianos. Eventually the company relocated to North Tonawanda, New York and quickly expanded to make band organs, orchestrions, nickelodeons and pipe or theater organs. Wurlitzer also sold guitars, mandolins and ukuleles made for them by other companies. These included various acoustic guitar brands (Cincinnatus etc.) from the late 1800s onwards as well as their own branded Wurlitzer electric guitars and basses from 1966 onwards (made by Holman and Welson).
