Dream Guitars® was started by Paul Heumiller and fingerstyle guitarist extraordinaire Martin Simpson. The idea was to gather together the finest guitars in the world and to offer them in an honorable fashion with real expertise and guidance. To this end we sought out and critically reviewed instruments from many of the top builders. We now offer many of the finest instruments in the world in one place, brought to you by players, for players.

Players Say: "What a staggering collection."

I just witnessed Dream Guitars in Asheville NC. What a staggering collection. Vintage instruments I’d always wanted to try – guitars by contemporary luthiers we read about – exotic masterpieces – they had the lot. I soon realised that manager, Paul Heumiller knew every detail of every guitar right down to the bridge pins, he is an authority on historical instruments and he plays himself. All presented in a friendly atmosphere, and after about 5 cups of tea, I was forced to leave the showroom thanks to Asheville airport. I may have to change my flight details next time!
