AT Guitars

I’ve been building and repairing guitars and ukuleles since 2005 in Sakura, Tochigi, Japan where I was born and raised. I attended the Summit School of Guitar Building and Repair in Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada where I learned much of my craft.

I’ve built many styles of guitars, such as acoustic, electric, arch-top, nylon-stringed, and gypsy guitars, as well as ukuleles. I specialize in jazz guitars, especially gypsy jazz guitars which are often called Selmer-Maccaferri style guitars.

My mission is to help my customers find an instrument that is their lifetime partner. A good instrument should look beautiful, be easy to play, and sound sweet to the player as well as their audience. I think that makes the players happy to play the instrument and even enhances their playing.

I believe that finding an instrument that is a good match for someone is similar to meeting good friends or a partner and it makes life richer.
