For over a decade Cardinal has been building guitars that are uniquely focused on the tonal, ergonomic, and aesthetic aspects of guitar playing. From the use of local woods, to custom made hardware and pickups, every aspect of the instrument is designed to move the craft forward. Not satisfied with simply good enough, but creating something that transcends the sum of its parts. A near perfect interface between guitarists and their ideas. This is the motivation of Cardinal: unique self expression that yields a great guitar.
My approach to guitar building has always been focused on the player first. That concept has driven me to constantly work towards customer relationships that match the right guitar with the right player. And exhibiting at the HGGS surrounds me with builders who share that same drive, compassion, and dedication.
