Eric Weigeshoff is known for building some of the most interesting and aesthetically unique guitars available. Ericʼs time-tested methods and design of these guitars creates a powerful yet player-focused and intimate guitar.

Coming from a design and film background as well was being a long-time rock climber, Eric approaches lutherie with a passion for stone and the natural world around him. All of these factors influence the distinctive and stunning aesthetics of his instruments.

“We are artists, craftspersons, musicians, and alchemists all rolled into one. We build an item that people use as a tool, for joy, and as artists”

Aesthetically unique and sonically thunderous, Eric is building some of the most innovative, individual and breath-taking guitars we've ever seen.

The best thing about working with TNAG is the support I get from Ben and the team. I know that everything that I donʼt want to worry about (marketing, shipping, customs, etc.) will be handled professionally, which gives me the time to keep my mind on building guitars.
