Custom Guitars. In Bremerton?

Behind this unassuming Bremerton storefront, an artist is perfecting his craft.

“I got my start when I was sixteen with building my first guitar," said John Thayer. "I started playing guitar when I was fourteen."

It wasn't until years later when his interest in wood-working also peaked, that things started melding together. Thayer took his love of music AND woodworking to Roberto-Venn Guitar Making School and soon after opened his own shop in Bremerton, where he specializes in one-off custom instruments and repairs.
