Pederson Custom Guitars (formerly Abyss Guitar Co.)

Hello, my name is Kevin L. Pederson, and I own and operate Pederson Custom Guitars (formerly Abyss Guitar Company). My business is located in Forest City, Iowa, in the heartland of America, where hard work and quality were born. I grew up on a farm, and the last thing I ever dreamed I would be was an instrument maker. I thought I was going to farm when I was younger.

But as that dream faded away, and my teen years crept in, I started playing guitar. Back in the day when you only had yourself to worry about, I would practice guitar all day and all night. From putting so much dedication in to my playing in those early years, I think it helped me develop the perseverance it takes to exist in today's world. A good definition of success that I have heard goes like this... "success is when preparation and opportunity meet." Another saying I agree with is... "so many people miss out on opportunity because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."
If I were a philosopher, I think this would be my philosophy: to work hard, be prepared for opportunity and build on the small achievements one step at a time. 
Kevin is an incredibly innovative and well respected builder of both acoustic and electric guitars. He is known for his spectacular inlay and finish work as well as interesting design features like adjustable saddles and necks for better playing and intonation.
