Stephen Stern
Senior Master Builder
As one of the preeminent archtop builders at the Custom Shop, Stephen Stern has studied under two of the worlds greatest archtop luthiers”Jimmy DAquisto and Bob Benedetto. Stern got his start apprenticing at a high-end cabinet shop straight out of high school. Five years of that prepared him for his first job as a builder at Jackson/Charvel Guitars. Stern came to the Custom Shop in 1993, working with DAquisto on the latters namesake line of guitars until the great luthiers death in 1995.

In the late 90s, millionaire collector Scott Chinery commissioned a number of custom archtop guitars by two dozen of the worlds finest living luthiers; Stern contributed a custom-built DAquisto Ultra. Chinerys œBlue Guitar Collection is now housed in the Smithsonian Institution. Stern also built a handful of exquisite archtops in collaboration with the Walt Disney Co. to commemorate the anniversary of the animated classic Fantasia.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars Custom Shop CVT Masterbuilt By Steve Stern Electric Guitar:

    A Gretsch Custom Shop Guitar at the price paid is a rare opportunity so I went for it. It's just a great guitar and unlike any other Gretsch I've owned or played.
