Muhammad Satria Nugraha or more familiarly called Hanung (founder of Stranough Guitar) felt that the cost was too high to get an electric guitar with the specifications he wanted. In it, the pockets that he had to spend to have an Ibanez JEM 7FP finally moved him to create a custom version of the Ibanez JEM 7FP, at a more affordable price, of course.
After that he began to learn everything about the guitar from foreign forums. Finally, Hanung ventured to open a custom guitar workshop that was able to produce top-quality guitars, but at a more affordable price.

Tom became interested in classical and flamenco guitars after working as a repairman in a store specializing in nylon string guitars. In 1995 Tom set out on his own to start Rodriguez Guitars. The response was so overwhelming to his classical guitars that he soon phased out all repair work. Tom Rodriguez handcrafts about fifteen guitars a year in his small studio. His guitars feature dome tops, arched backs, carbon fiber reinforced necks and his own unique asymmetrical lattice bracing. Rodriguez is a self taught luthier drawing inspiration from and working closely with his customers on design to come up with the rare guitar that combines exceptional craftmanship, superb sound and excellent playability.
