Christian Guitar Company?

So I'm about to be in the market for a new acoustic. I will be going to college to study worship leadership this fall with a concentration in guitar. Currently, I play a D28 style guitar that my grandfather built a few years ago. It has zebra wood back and sides. I've always been a huge Martin guy and will probably get a new Martin. I've looked at, listened to, and played many Taylors (mainly a friend's 614ce) but haven't been impressed. I love the deep bass and responsiveness in the Martins. Be that as it may, are there any guitar companies that are openly Christian? Or at least have some Christians working for them? It would be neat if there were that I could give some serious thought to.

The only one that comes to mind is Zion Guitars but they don't make acoustics.

I think most of Fireflight's guitars are Sozo.

Statistically I would imagine all guitar manufacturers would have a number of Christians working for them. I can understand you wanting to support fellow Christians, but that is an awfully specific thing you're asking.

Yeah I thought that would be the case. Just something I was curious about.

Why do you want a Christian guitar company? Is a non-Christian luthier less worthy of earning their daily bread than a Christian?

Like Israel of old, we're to bless the society we find ourselves in, not hang out in our own little private Christian economy.

“Conquer people by your gentle kindness, and make zealous people wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of justice to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all people, but keep distant from all people.”

- St. Isaac of Nineveh

I said, “I will guard my ways, that I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth with a muzzle, so long as the wicked are in my presence.” I was mute and silent; I held my peace to no avail, and my distress grew worse. My heart became hot within me. As I mused, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: “O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am! Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Surely a man goes about as a shadow! Surely for nothing they are in turmoil; man
heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather!

- Psalm 39 (38 LXX): 1-6

Ireland, I think. He did good work.

Tom Anderson is a Christian, if I remember correctly. The crowdster is an acoustic...sorta.

I have nothing against "non-Christian" companies. I was just curious if there were in fact Christian guitar companies and if their products were worth looking at.

I think the guy that was visiting here for awhile was Cornerstone Guitars. No idea if they're still around.
