Tim McKnight, who founded McKnight Guitars in 1992, had honed his craft over many years while repairing instruments built by others. In the process, he came to appreciate the elegance of guitar designs that work—and learned a great deal from those that didn’t. This invaluable experience provided him with the perfect environment in which to develop a desired style of fine custom guitars, artfully blending tradition with innovation to achieve a new level of excellence.
A former member of the Guild of American Luthiers (GAL) and the Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans (ASIA), Tim has been able to stay on top of the latest innovations in the custom guitar marketplace. He studied with world renowned luthier Ervin Somogyi to further his education.
