Custom Acoustic Guitars by Luthier Dan Kugler, Located in Conifer, CO.
NoName Guitars are clean, simple, and natural by design. Each piece of wood is selected based on its natural beauty and tonal qualities. Every custom guitar is designed to produce full, articulate tones, drawing out the best of our musical abilities. NoName Guitars are all unique and completely handmade by Dan Kugler.
What is the price range? NoName Guitars are all custom-built, and reasonably priced between $2,000-$5,000 based on the wood and custom features. Considering the level of quality and craftsmanship, you will not find a better value for either a custom or a high-end factory guitar. I invite you to make the comparison for yourself.
How long have you been building guitars? Since 1999
How did you start building guitars? I’ve been a woodworker and a musician since 1964. Perhaps convergence was inevitable, but ultimately, I started building specific guitars because I wanted to play them. Now I build guitars because it’s a compulsion.
Where do you find your wood? Wood sourcing is a highly classified trade secret. But seriously, it can be a tricky subject. Mostly, I use wood from my hoard, and the hoards of my cabinet-making network of friends. Sometimes I source standard materials from responsible commercial suppliers depending on the specific needs of a project. If my selection of traditional, domestic, and exotic wood doesn’t include what you’re looking for, I probably know where to find it (as long as it doesn’t involve cutting down an endangered tree or violating a free-trade agreement).
