John Greven has been creating custom instruments for musicians around the world for the past 40 years. They have come to appreciate the superior sound quality and ease of playing characteristic of his guitars."My years working for George Gruhn at Gruhn Guitars repairing and restoring exceptional vintage instruments taught me both what was possible and how to recreate that amazing tonal envelope. I had the opportunity to work on the pre-war Martin D-45's of Red Smiley and Charlie Monroe as well as hundreds of herringbones of all shapes and sizes, allowing me to see and hear the difference between old guitars from the 1920s through 1950s and new guitars available from the major companies. They were outwardly so similar, yet tonally worlds apart." - John Greven
