Why not spread the cost?


Based out of Rossville, GA, Isaac Stroupe worked and apprenticed at Atlanta Violins for eight years before starting Minerva Guitars. With his inspiration rooted in the great American guitar makers of the 1920’s and 1930’s, Isaac puts a particular focus on the more obscure models from those eras, as well as taking pride in primarily using sustainably harvested, non-endangered North American tonewoods. Each Minerva guitar is handcrafted, avoiding power tools and jigs wherever possible, in addition to being constructed with 100% hot hide glue, and finished with a homemade, hand rubbed spirit varnish. 

This Minerva 1933 L-00 14-Fret is a prime example of what one can expect when purchasing a Minerva guitar. The Engelmann Spruce top, paired with its Cherry back, sides, and neck, come together to create a playing experience that is nothing short of satisfying. The Cherry brings out a brightness and immediacy that is similar to Maple, while still retaining a soft, subtle warmth that is reminiscent of Mahogany. The home-brewed, hand rubbed spirit varnish allows the guitar to breathe, making it extremely dynamic and responsive, ideal for both picking or fingerstyle playing. This Minerva L-00 is constructed of 99% native woods and is perfect for those looking for a high quality, hand built guitar that feels and sounds as if it was 85+ years old.
