Just Arrived: Five New Kool Kids from Kauer Guitars

A single instrument from Doug Kauer sends everyone wild… so you’ll be pleased to know we’ve just welcomed five new stunners from the Sacramento-based builder into the Nashville showroom...

Kauer Guitars, aka Doug Kauer, has been building some of the coolest (koolest?) boutique instruments for more than a decade from his Sacramento workshop in California. Across a range of custom solid and semi-hollow models, Doug blends in vouge, off set, and reverse body shapes with boutique pickups and the finest body woods and appointments.
We had our first batch from Kauer Guitars arrive back in April 2019 (two Gretsch-influenced Super Chiefs and a Firebird-influenced Banshee) and we’ve been waiting for this second batch to arrive pretty much ever since! So hit them up before they fly out the door.
This new batch is made up of not one, not three, but five new instruments! We’ve got two Koronas, one Banshee, and two Super Chiefs. So let’s take a look at them…
