Mirage Guitar Works was founded by Paul Gobat in 1978. The first production Mirage Guitar Works guitar was sold in 1979: the Mirage Mindbender with a cast polyester body. By 1982 almost 1000 Mindbenders had been sold and this model was featured in Guitar Player magazine. Over time Mirage Guitar Works offered a range of acoustic and electric guitars typically limited to production runs of less than 500 per model and some made overseas. The company closed in 2006 when the factory and warehouse was destroyed by fire.
The Mirage models were as follows:
- Acoustic: B6, B12, C6, C12, C6C, C12C, C6CE, C12CE, F6C, F12C, F6CE, F12CE, F612, E6, G6
- Electric: Beram 1, Beram 2, Beram 12, Biggs 1, Biggs 2, Biggs 3, Ervin 1, Ervin 2. The very first Mirage electrics were Mindbender 1 and 2
- There were a number of acoustics and electrics that were "1-off"
