Urlacher Guitars

 Profile Picture

Being intrigued by the guitar and having a growing interest in working with wood, my curiosity piqued to the point that I had to take action. In 2002 I embarked on the journey of guitar building. One year later I had the unmatched pleasure of stringing up my first steel-string acoustic guitar. I consider myself to be self-taught, although I have gained a lot of information and guidance from several fine luthiers.

I live in the Pacific Northwest, a part of the country that is saturated with many great luthiers. Eugene, Oregon is where I lived for 20 years and got my start in building guitars. In 2011 I relocated to Bend, Oregon. Central Oregon is inspiring with beauty and the climate is moderate and dry, making Bend a fine place to build instruments. I currently build a small handful of guitars per year, focusing on custom build quality rather than producing a large number of guitars.
