A Masterpiece of Tone, Clarity, Responsiveness, & Playability

 


We Believe that -

You make the guitar great; You create the memories and tell the story with your songs, touching the lives of those around you. That is what makes your guitar great, something to be passed on to those you love for future generations. It is your connection with the guitar that makes it great.

Making Great Guitars?
Making Guitars Great? -

What makes a guitar great? Wood choices, construction methods, component tuning, quality finishes, precision setups? How about an artist's endorsement, wood from a specific region of the world or even from a specific tree? At Charis Acoustic, we don't believe any of these things are what makes a guitar great.

CHARACTER - CHARISMA - CHARIS

PRONOUNCED KAIR-ISS - A GREEK WORD WHICH MEANS GRACE

"The word 'grace' can have many meanings (agility, dexterity, balance, harmony). However, Charis was not formed with any of these specific ideas in mind, although it is hoped that they will apply to each instrument. The idea behind choosing the name comes from my ever increasing amazement at the Grace of God, grace that allows one as undeserving as me to be a child of God. This relationship was possible when Jesus Christ died to make
me right with God. It is this grace that inspired the name Charis Acoustic."

"IT IS MY HOPE THAT EACH INSTRUMENT WILL, IN SOME WAY, BE USED BY GOD TO DRAW PEOPLE TO HIS AMAZING GRACE. THIS IS MY MOTIVATION TO CREATE FINE INSTRUMENTS. IF I CAN BE OF ANY ASSISTANCE IN YOUR SEARCH FOR PEACE WITH GOD, PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT ME."
