Stephen Stern
Senior Master Builder
As one of the preeminent archtop builders at the Custom Shop, Stephen Stern has studied under two of the world' greatest archtop luthiers”Jimmy D™Aquisto 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 D™Aquisto on the latter' namesake line of guitars until the great luthier' death in 1995.

In the late ™90s, millionaire collector Scott Chinery commissioned a number of custom archtop guitars by two dozen of the world' finest living luthiers; Stern contributed a custom-built D™Aquisto Ultra. Chinery' 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.
