"Justin built me a custom OM that’s easily one of the best sounding guitars I’ve ever played on. I’m really impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of the instrument... and it’s set up perfectly!

During the design process, Justin educated me on tonal qualities of wood choices and made sure he fit me with a guitar that would resonate with Me. I couldn’t be more pleased with the guitar and continue to get rave reviews from everyone who plays it!"  Brent Felchlin, DePere WI

"Just got my Eisenman dreadnaught guitar. Great look with personalized insignia on head. A light touch is all that's needed to make a rich sound, and a strong hand fills the room with balanced tone. It reveals subtle differences, like F v Dm7, better than any guitar I've played. Justin offered me all the options on this one and I am so delighted with how it turned out."  Daniel Yarosh, Long Island NY

Justin Eisenman built this beauty of an axe down at the Eisenman Guitars shop in Asheville, North Carolina! It's quite the cannon, featuring Honduran Mahogany back, sides, and neck, reclaimed from a 100+ year old source. The top is Adirondack Spruce and it's tone bar and back bracing is old growth Sitka Spruce. It looks gorgeous, but I'm mostly stoked about it's playability and it's super punchy and clear sound. It's got undeniably outstanding balance and tone that makes me excited to pick it up and rip. I'm really looking forward to getting some blood, sweat, and tears on that thing! Without question, I highly recommend Justin's work and can confidently put this axe right up there with the Bougiouse, Thompson, Collins, and Larrivee guitars that I've played. Justin's super kind, easy to work with, and is willing to build a guitar that fits your heart, soul, and playin' style. Hit him up if you want a badass custom guitar! Trust me, it'll help ya smile.
