Location: Springfield, Tennessee

Armor Guitar Company handmade instruments are built one at a time and are individually hand crafted by me, James Peters, paying attention to every detail of how the instrument is constructed and how all the pieces fit together to better the response, tone, volume, feel and playability.

These are key factors to consider when looking for the right instrument - and most, "off the shelf" guitars usually fail in at least one if not most of those 5 critical areas.

One day while doing a rather extensive repair (a 1972 Martin D-28), it hit me that it would almost be easier to build him a new guitar than to repair this one. I finished his guitar and it turned out great. That was when I decided to get geared up and start building.

Armor Guitars have a signature, unique headstock shape and bridge design. Tried and true traditional methods of construction give a solid look, feel, sound and playability to all Armor Guitar Company instruments.

I still provide specialized acoustic instrument repair so feel free to contact me for more information if you have a cherished or high value instrument that is in need of experienced repair.

With 35-years plus of experience as a semi-professional musician, songwriter and veteran of the musical stage, I am well aware of what to look, feel and listen for in a musical instrument.

I am highly communicative so feel free to email or call to get the ball rolling!
