Meet The Luthiers at Guitar Czar

Moses McKinley

A graduate of the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery, Moses McKinley has been working full-time since 2010 building custom acoustic and electric guitars & mandolins, and doing repair work on a variety of stringed instruments for Guitar Technologies, Guitar Center and Riff’s Acoustic Music, Acoustic Music, Guitar Chimp, and now Guitar Czar. Moses started taking guitars apart and putting them back together at the age of 14, and never really stopped doing it. Moses has three of his instruments tattooed on his body; that’s how special they are to him. It’s that level of love for an instrument that he wants everyone to experience.

No stranger to the unconventional, Moses has worked on instruments from around the world like the Oud, Cavaquinho, Charango, and balalaika. Because of his reputation as one of the top luthiers in the state, he has worked on thousands of instruments, as well as, guitars for many touring bands including Molotov SolutionThe Vibrators, and Imagine Dragons. When he isn’t building and repairing, he is playing mandolin in FOLK HOGAN, and guitar in Turtleneck Wedding Dress
