A letter from Matt
I've been a guitarist since age 14, been working on my gear since I was 16, and performing since I was 18. But like many, I often set music aside for a time to focus on what people told me I should care about. I lived in the rat race, ruled by the corporate grind.


But in 2020, I woke up. Enough was enough. Life is short, and music is my passion.


Now here we are, together, sharing a community built around the most inspiring musical force in our lives, the guitar. I am home and glad to have you here with me.


- Matt Ackerman (Founder, EGW Guitars)

CUSTOM GUITARS

I've played many AMAZING guitars but never connected with them. They might have played great and sounded even better, but I hated how they looked on me when I took the stage. That's why I design EGW guitars from the ground up, to be the guitars I want to sling over my shoulder. I want the same for you.
 

Get all the design elements you expect from a pristine, custom instrument perfectly tailored to you and your style.

EGW Guitars offers a wide variety of common electric guitar repairs, maintenance, and services. Utilizing my 25+ years of industry experience, I commit to caring for your instruments like my own to keep you and your guitars center-stage where you belong.

Your guitar is an extension of you. It should play like it.
