Custom hand-crafted guitars made in Portland, OR by Clayton Pledger.




In a world of mass production, I feel that something as precious and beautiful as an instrument, which sings the music from the soul of the musician playing it, should always be built with finesse, care and by hand.

Each guitar is created with the musician in mind. I strive to build a light but very strong guitar, with a crisp wood sound that projects and sustains every note and chord played.



The combination of wood choices, rosettes, bindings, purfling, and any other embellishments change from guitar to guitar.  I typically make the decisions on how it all goes together, but am always open to design requests, and love working with clients to help custom-build their perfect dream guitar.
