About M&V Guitars

The Story Behind the Legend!

instruments look like they were made in a U.S. factory in the 1950's, in reality each instrument is handmade by an experienced, individual luthier. We use modern processes where there is a clear improvement in quality, such as machine-cut bodies and necks, and modern ultra-thin lacquers that breathe and wear better than nitrocellulose.

Our guiding principal is: Instrument quality, playability and tone are all that matter. Our passion for guitars is manifested in each model, and each instrument. Our instruments are created for those who are ready to forge their own sound. Are you ready to try something new and different?

M&V Guitars was founded in 2008 and debuted at Winter NAMM in Anaheim Cal. in 2009.

Our passion is to develop new and different guitars, basses and pickups that solve musical desires and expand instrument capabilities. Our guitars and basses will make you play differently and hopefully spark your creativity. We try to address the needs, desires and vision of musicians of all kinds.
