Howard Guitars is committed to building fine handcrafted instruments. James builds one guitar at a time so he can concentrate on each detail to create a beautiful guitar. Each guitar is built so each note played has great sustain and separation. The response of the guitar is the same in all registers.  Playability is very important in the finished instrument.  His goal is to create a guitar with a look, sound, and playability that is irresistible.  He custom designes guitars to fit individual playing styles, using many different woods, bindings, scale lengths, and body shapes to personally fit each player. Custom designed inlay is sometimes added to further personalize the guitar.
