James Peters enjoys what he does. Waking up every morning and working in his woodshop in the back of his house is the “bees knees” as James says.   Once there, he makes custom acoustic guitars. He is, as it’s called, a luthier based in Springfield, TN.

After moving to Nashville in 1989 and having some success in the country music songwriting industry, a friend asked James to repair his guitar. It was after that experience that he realized it would be easier — and more enjoyable — to build acoustic guitars from scratch rather than repair old ones. That’s when James started Armor Guitars. He’s never looked back.

Very nice.
