Paul Eliasson and guitarsI am a self-taught electric guitar and amplifier builder in the Baltimore-Washington DC metro area.  I discovered this artform over a decade ago and continue to refine my skills.  I build guitars from a wide variety of woods including ash, alder, mahogany, cocobolo, ebony, yellow- and purpleheart, padauk, and zebra wood.

My work has been featured in the Baltimore Sun, Johns Hopkins Magazine, and I won the 2009 Sudler Arts Prize, the top award for excellence in the arts, at Johns Hopkins University for my lutherie.

    I am very pleased with my “White Serena” guitar. In addition to the impeccable craftsmanship and beauty, it is comfortable to hold and play. The sound is crystal clear and balanced. It’s a treasured part of my collection.
