- electric guitars
Gil Yaron was born in Israel in 1966 and has many years experience of modifying and repairing guitars. In the 1990s he moved to Los Angeles where he became involved in the vintage guitar market as an expert vintage guitar repairer. Soon the repair jobs developed into partial builds and restoration work. He had been building guitars and basses for some years before deciding to investigate the manufacturing processes used for the iconic 1950s American electric guitars. He amassed all the information, photos, instruments and original paper work needed to accurately reproduce those classics. In 2007 he assembled the plans alongside the original tools, jigs and building techniques of the golden era and began making the guitars for sale. He may now have relocated back to Israel.
