About Gmyr Guitars

About Walt (Butch) Gmyr – Founder of GMYR Guitars

Since I started playing guitar in 1956, I have had the opportunity to either play or own all of the instruments that guitar and bass guitar players revere today. In 1977, I started designing and building my own instruments, with a clear focus on making quality, specialty-design instruments capable of providing consistent, reliable tone and playability, night after night, for professional artists like yourself.

Every Gmyr Guitar that we make for you starts with dialogue to understand exactly what you have in mind for your ideal instrument. This includes a conversation with us to prepare your desired components, body, neck and headstock design, electronic component and pick-up features and your desired finish. Our commitment is to consistently deliver what you as the musician consider important in achieving that particular tone, sustain and playability that you’ve been seeking, while providing the appearance and finish aesthetics that make you proud to have this instrument in your hands and on the stage.

We also have some examples of instruments that have already been manufactured. See link to our Gallery page and ask if the one you like is available.

All Gmyr Guitars are made in the USA.

We also provide multi-lingual support to our European customers through our partner Sherman Engineering, in Switzerland. We ship worldwide.
