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.
