How Furlan Guitars Are Built

Furlan Guitars is a one-man shop run by John Furlan.  John is a member of the Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans and the Guild of American Luthiers.  Every instrument begins with raw lumber that is handcrafted into Your Number One.  Each guitar is built using traditional methods in the way that the great guitars of the 50’s and 60’s were made.  Where there is room to improve on traditional designs, materials, and construction techniques, those improvements are made.  Each instrument is built to sound good, look good, and feel good.
