Like many others, I began crafting stringed instruments early in life. I still remember scavenging used guitar strings from the wastebasket in grade school and screwing them down on wood planks. Soon after, I added the tape head from a cassette recorder and wired it as a pickup.
Many years later, I surveyed over 100 guitarists for their preferences in neck, electronics, top carve, etc. The results were tallied, and then I added several bona fide innovations to the design – and JET Guitars was born in 1998, with three prototypes. Creating the world’s best electric guitars, completely handcrafted by a single luthier, was my mission. Alive with quality you must see, feel and hear to believe. Striving for true style integrated with, not merely sacrificed to, incredible playability, balance, and tone.
I am deeply grateful that I have had the opportunity to put several hundred of my creations into musicians’ hands all over the world. Read the letters I have received over the years, and see for yourself why I believe I have accomplished my goals. email to Jeffrey Earle T.
