Healy Guitars: Handmade guitars and repair services
Healy Guitars is committed to creating quality handmade instruments. Each guitar is crafted and voiced to suit the players needs and desires. I draw inspiration from my favorite vintage guitars to create modern instruments with a nod to tradition in design, construction, and tone. My designs favor simplicity, allowing for the appreciation of fine materials and clean craftsmanship. In addition to custom guitar work, I offer a full compliment of repair and restoration services.
I grew up in a musical family and have always been involved in some kind of craft as well. After attending the Roberto-Venn School of Lutherie in 1999, I found my calling in guitar making as a luthier.
I started my workshop in the Eastworks building here in Easthampton in 2011 and enjoy working with such a wonderful community of artists and musicians here in the Valley.
