Rockbridge Guitars


Rockbridge Guitar Company is a Virginia-based guitar crafting company that prides itself on its meticulous crafting process. The construction of a custom-made guitar begins by selecting the type of tonewoods to be used throughout the instrument, followed by the decison as to which of  eight available models will be the best fit for the player’s individual style and taste.  Then comes the nitty-gritty decisions on hardware, inlays, and other details essential to completion of the final product.


Rockbridge Guitars are rare and exquisite instruments indeed, with incredible tonality and design. A well-kept secret, Rockbridge is a three-man custom shop that produces a small number of high-end, handcrafted guitars every year. Their building philosophy, which includes a painstaking attention to detail, makes every Rockbridge Guitar a beautiful instrument with exceptional tone.


Rockbridge is all about quality not quantity, and is proud that even though its production is limited to around 40 guitars a year, its customers include both world-famous artists and amateur players of all styles and abilities. Prominent Rockbridge players include: Dave Matthews, Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), Mike Campbell (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), legendary session guitarist Waddy Wachtell (Keith Richards, James Taylor, Stevie Nicks, Warren Zevon, Jackson Browne), Ben Harper, and many others.
