Morningstar Owners Say

A beautifully voiced guitar that is sonically unique. It has a clean sound that shimmers differently and a vocal like tone when it’s cranked. It’s a welcomed addition to my sonic arsenal.
— Eddie Martinez - Guitarist
I haven’t stopped playing the Morningstar since I got it. It’s pure delight. I love how it has the familiarity of being a branch off of the “S” style family tree, but has the crazy acoustic resonance and sonic depth I’ve come to expect from your wood selection and pick up designs. It’s an amazingly inspiring guitar that I love playing, and it enables me to speak with an expansive and unique voice.
— Dan Phelps - Guitarist, Writer & Producer
First the finish. Aztec Gold Heavily relic’d . Straight from Machu Picchu mountain. Beautiful. “Man Made” trem bridge; Smooth and stable. Neck and fretboard. Feeling like a glove to my hand. Sound: Fancy lows, very guitar-friendly mids and a wonderful airy high end. Never harsh or trebly. A very inspring guitar. Makes me play differently.
— Eric Melaerts - Guitarist and Producer in Belgium
