Thompson-December16-4136.jpegNoted for their power and immediate, responsive voice, Preston Thompson Guitars pay tribute to the best American made instruments from the 1930s. Master guitar luthier Preston Thompson and his small team of highly skilled craftsman produce custom acoustic guitars that have the look, playing feel and above all, the sound of the best instruments from that original Golden Era of guitar making.

Thompson Guitars are built strong and light with time tested designs and construction methods, providing a lifetime of enjoyment. Our instruments are handmade every step of the way, from the finest woods available, including Brazilian Rosewood, Honduran Mahogany, Oregon Myrtlewood, Honduran Rosewood, Adirondack Spruce, Lutz Spruce, Sitka Spruce and European Spruce.

It's no accident that we're situated in Sisters, Oregon, aThompson-5992.jpeg town with a national reputation for Americana and roots music. Our shop is located right next door to The Belfry, an iconic music venue that also happens to be a converted church built in 1914. Each fall, the annual Sisters Folk Festival celebrates American music from folk to bluegrass to blues, drawing people from every corner of the country. The Sisters Starry Nights concert series has also put Sisters on the map with recording artists and music lovers from Nashville to Los Angeles. We're proud to be part of this exciting music scene, so come by for a visit and stop by to say hello.
