designed by artists for artists

"Started in 2014, Cave and Canary Guitars began with the purpose of creating the instruments I couldn’t afford, but desperately wanted. I immediately found a love for design, and worked through several models on a custom basis, augmenting details to fit each player’s unique requirements, while discovering the shared attributes they were all after, evolving what began as the realization of my personal taste, into instruments that could feel like home to anyone."

We started Cave and Canary Guitars in 2014, after years of modifying other instruments to meet our preferences. From our time on the road, we knew what we were looking for in a guitar, but couldn’t find one instrument that had everything. Neck profile, pickups, body shape, etc.  
 
At some point, it became clear that getting everything we wanted in an instrument meant starting from the ground up. We’ve spent years building dozens of instruments for not just ourselves but, eventually for our customers. In this time, we have crafted a few models that we feel we’ve really perfected. In collaboration with our partnered manufacturer in South Korea, we developed our first production-line model, The Meteor. 
 
This guitar represents years of research and prototyping, resulting in an affordable and high quality instrument that we feel is suitable for all players. We are proud to showcase our dream and the craftsmanship that has gone into these guitars.
