WITH NATURAL INGREDIENTS

HOMEMADE FRESHNESS

Being an artist, the process for me is really not building, it is creating a guitar.  My goal is to create something different.

And the best part is, others can use the art that I have created to create their own.

 

Everything is done by hand.  I use natural ingredients as much as possible that are safe for the environment and the player.

No paint, no plastic.  This allows the natural beauty and feel of the wood be the core of the look and sound.

 

 Each guitar is unique & its own, these are not manufactured machines.  They have a soul of character & personality.

This is not a factory... I'm just one guy with a handful of tools & a head full of ideas.  This is art in constant motion & change.

ORDER A CUSTOM GUITAR

DESIGN OPTIONS

I like to create.  I think it's boring to cut the same design from a template every day.  So, while I have come up with a couple of homemade custom body designs & pickups that I really love, I want to create a unique, one of a kind guitar each time I build one.  You can help design yours.  After you select your Options and Cover Theme below, let's talk about your ideas & create something together that speaks to you.

 

COVER THEME

 PICKUPS

  BODY

Covers make these guitars unique. They are the face and soul of the body.  Inspired by natural elements, choose between the four elements and then let's discuss the details.

Mini Ovis is a 3 pole version of the Ovis to capture a few extra tones.

Single Coil Ovis is a 6 pole standard maple wood bobbin with Alnico 2 Magnets.

Shorthorn

Compact and curvy.

Longhorn

More curve to swerve.

I LOVE TO MAKE STUFF

ABOUT CHUCKER

I have always wanted to make stuff.

If I read it, saw it or heard it, I wanted to make my own version of it.  My father was also an artist, and I attribute most of my creative passion to watching him for hours in his studio.  The ability to turn endless ideas into something real that evokes emotion and thought was pretty powerful.

My fascination with the guitar came about 1976 when I saw Ace Frehley.  From that moment on I wanted to play a guitar, write songs on a guitar and record with a guitar.

 

 

It wasn't until 1999 that I seriously considered building a guitar.  After searching EBay one day for "Van Halen Guitar" & finding a lot of home-painted guitars for sale, I thought, I could do that!  And if I was going to go through the trouble of painting it, why not just design and build my own guitars.  For the next several  years I learned how to refinish and repair old guitars.  In 2007 I started designing & building my own guitars from scratch.

That is how Chucker Guitars began.
