Isaac Jang Guitars

Isaac Jang Guitars

One of my highlights of the Memphis Guitar Festival was meeting Isaac Jang. Isaac makes superlative guitars with a unique eye for detail and tone that many luthiers that have been building for decades struggle to achieve. Two of his first builds sold at the show on the first day! He will be starting his first guitar for TAMCO early in 2016. I'm too old to wish time away but I am in this case. Isaac says .

I was born in Korea. I moved to Los Angeles in 1999, then that my journey began. I learned to play the guitar after seeing Tommy Emmanuel, my eyes were opened. After graduating from Galloup School of Lutherie in 2007, I began my apprenticeship under the wonderful builder, Kathy Wingert. .

Along with my apprenticeship, I worked at Westwood Music under the guidance of my beloved friend and mentor Fred Walecki. I performed tasks including extensive structural reconstruction, finish repairs, and vintage instrument restorations. .

I am currently building a very limited number of instruments every year. Every great guitar starts with great wood. I handpick the finest materials, one-by-one, and build with traditional methods of guitar making. My goal is to bring the best of wood to music. Every piece of wood has its own unique characteristics and tonal qualities; therefore, I spend time to analyze and know the wood so as to bring out its fullest musical potential.

    My first from Isaac and what a beauty!

    It has fantastic warmth and balance with a great richness of tone. Amazing projection and clarity all the way to the easily accessible top fret.
