New Luthier: Gaiero Guitars
We are thrilled to announce the newest addition to our luthier roster: Mark Gaiero of Gaiero Guitars!
Prior to establishing his own shop in Portland, OR, Mark spent several years apprenticing with Ervin Somogyi. While you can certainly see the influence, Mark's guitars have a voice and look all their own, with a modern flair and responsive, rich tone. Mark is also dedicated to ecological sustainability. He avoids using threatened wood species in his builds, using the less common black walnut and Oregon myrtle as his Core Model tonewood options. Plus, for every guitar sold, 20 trees are planted through One Tree Planted.
We can't wait to receive an OM-13 in black walnut and surfer redwood soon. Check out some photos and a video of Mark's past builds for a taste of what's to come!
