Jon Kammerer Custom: The Ultimate Boutique Guitar?

by vaughn skow May 31, 2020 2 min read

Howdy Guitar lovers of all shapes and sizes ... or is that lovers of GUITARS of all shapes and sizes?  Guess it works either way!  Like most all of you, I LOVE a perfect feeling Strat, Tele, Les Paul, or 335 style guitar.  The time-tested and true designs are still around for a reason: they got it RIGHT!  However, just as there will always be car affectionados who feel the need to push the limits beyond what, say a corvette can do and seek out a Ferrari or Lamborghini ... there will always be guitar affectionados likewise seeking to push the limits, and enter the world of the hand-crafted, boutique, and exotic guitars. 

WARNING: Once bitten by the boutique guitar bug, there is no recovery!

One American builder who certainly knows how to walk the fine line between exotic designs and familiar shapes and feels is Iowan Jon Kammerer.  John is one of the few Luthiers who actually holds a degree in guitar design, and if that isn't enough, he's a licensed medical nurse, too! So ... when you faint from seeing his beautiful instruments, he'll know how to resuscitate you! John blends beautiful designs that are simultaneously attention getting and unique, yet timeless and  comfortable; and yes, oh so playable in a professional setting.  Jon Uses his proprietary designs, exotic woods and advanced CNC programing skills to produce his stunning instruments, that SCREAM from across the room that they are something special.  You can contact Jon through his site:

Now what you've waited for, let's see the guitars!
