MEET THE BUILDER

BUILDER: JAMES MELLOZZO

Building guitars is one of my greatest passions. Taking a dead piece of wood and giving it life again has an overwhelming feeling of satisfaction.

Artist James Mellozzo has developed a number of designs in various woods and finishes that brings something new to the guitar world, from ordinary into the extraordinary. His handcrafted art has an inspiring beauty that draws from a variety of influences, including Old World, historical references, and natural elements. He strives for perfection and will take many months just to collect the proper combination of parts to complete a guitar. He has been called the Frank Lloyd Wright of the guitar world and has never reproduced the same guitar twice. He has sold guitars in almost every country on the planet and has been hired as a consultant for some of the most well known boutique builders in the United States. Feel free to contact him via e-mail with any requests or questions.
