Bob Dill Guitars – Custom Guitars

Custom Guitars by Bob Dill

Bob Dill, luthier at Bob Dill Guitars, builds beautiful custom guitars from a wide variety of excellent tone woods. Bob and his wife, Alexa, live in the Hood River, Oregon area now and have built a beautiful new shop on their ever evolving “ranch” south of town. Along with being an amazing luthier, Bob has an interesting history.

One of the joys of creating a custom guitar is when it touches the heart of the player. Pictured below is an example of such a pairing. After meeting and being left speechless by the skilled and talented performances of musician/singer/songwriter Kit Garoutte, Bob and Kit consulted on producing Kit’s perfect guitar. The result was a beautiful Port Orford Cedar and Myrtlewood guitar.

Kit has been using this instrument for his performances, practice and recordings with the sound becoming even more rich and resonant as time passes. Please take a moment to listen to Kit playing this guitar on one of his original songs from his “Finger Dancing” album.
