Blackshear, Tom

Thomas Blackshear has been making fine guitars since 1958. His instrument are in the Spanish tradition. Blackshear guitars have been played by many professional players including modern phenom Chaconne Klaverenga.

I began taking flamenco guitar lessons in '57, and built my first guitar in '58. This started me on the road to self expression that has lasted for over 55 years. Today being middle aged, it's becoming more clear to me why I have chosen this path. Sometimes I think it's not so much my ability to make choices, but rather a higher design that directs my choice. Perhaps I could have become a mechanic or a doctor, but in retrospect, I believe this was the best choice.

The highest compliment I can think of is that all of my clients that have Blackshear guitars keep them. They are 'life-long' instruments and that speaks volumes to the quality of Tom's guitars.
