Yes, they were conerstone guitars, and they looked amazing.

Tim McKnight is also a professing Christian who builds fantastic guitars (or so I've seen/heard. Never played one).

I didn't realize he was in Southern California. The store he links to on his site is a "by appointment only" shop in San Diego.

There is Warrior guitars--but I don't think they make acoustics--and they are expensive.
At least I read somewhere they were Christians.
I can't remember where.

Wow. It's almost $12,000. I'm not nearly good enough to spend that kind of money on a guitar.

It's pretty but I've seen prettier at lower prices. I don't know why he charges so much. Site doesn't look very active either. Wonder if he priced himself out of business...

You can get a very nice Taylor or Martin for a fraction of that price.

The price is high, but not necessarily out of the ordinary for a one man operation

I will never be in the market for a high end guitar. I have seen guitars TWICE that so I don't question his pricing. It's not something I will ever purchase but I'm sure there are those out there who might.

Have you all ever priced a Henderson guitar made by Wayne Henderson? The guy is local to me, but has serious chops.

If you're looking for an American made guitar from a Christian company with Christian workers, you should probably expect to pay a premium for the super specific niche market.

And even if you find it, and spend that much on it, there's no reason to think it will make you a better player of songs for Christ.

By the way, S.B., I like the Lewis quote.

Tim Mcknight makes some great guitars and the McKnight family are also great people. Another possible choice is Solid Rock Guitars. They are a small builder in Virginia making hand made guitars. I have never played one and don't know much about them other than they are Christian and hand build guitars starting at $1600.
