Guitars by Darren Hippner

It’s my goal to replicate the sound of the finest vintage guitars that are beautifully handcrafted, relatively lightweight, and very responsive to the touch. I continue to learn more about the art & science of building instruments with each new guitar and strive to handcraft very musical guitars with exceptional tone, playability and timeless aesthetic beauty.”
