Danny Davis hand crafts some of the finest instruments in the South.

His passion is building beautifully resonate guitars and mandolins.  Each instrument is created to the musician’s specifications and aesthetic desires.   He provides the highest quality craftsmanship and tonal engineering to produce an instrument that will be cherished for a lifetime.   Each instrument is adorned with his signature logo, a Mother of Pearl inlayed Bonsai Tree.  This art symbolizes the thoughtful and ingenious manipulation of nature’s gifts. 

Danny has twenty-five years of luthier experience, having designed and built high-quality custom Acoustic Guitars and Mandolins.  He has a thorough understanding of acoustics and mechanical systems through a degree in Mechanical Engineering and from a thirty year career with NASA developing space launch systems.

Danny’s approach to designing and building instruments is based on a deep understanding of the first principles of physics and engineering.  As a NASA engineer and manager, Danny developed a first hand understanding of how structures respond to forces.  Just as spacecrafts vibrate, so do guitars.  The craft is to shape the wood so the vibration frequencies are ideal for musical note production.  This knowledge is critical to making instruments that have a balanced and lively response to the artist’s intention.  Danny’s patience and love for his craft make his instruments special and cherished by many.

If you are ready to acquire the instrument of your dreams, please view instruments currently for sale in the Guitar Store, or visit the Pricing Guide and contact Luthier Danny Davis to discuss custom design options.

Danny Davis also accepts repair work on acoustic guitars and mandolins.  Pricing is based on luthier assessment of work required.  Please contact us to discuss your repair needs.
