100% Handmade Luxury Instruments
Echopark Guitars

Founded by Gabriel Currie in 2011, Echopark Guitars supplies the world with 100% handcrafted luxury guitars that are vintage-toned and styled. With his extensive history crafting for musicians like Jonny '2Bags' Wickersham (Social Distortion), Brad Whitford (Aerosmith), and Monte Pittman (Madonna, Prong), Currie decided to make his high-quality instruments into a business.

Currie first got his start at 10 years old when he disassembled his 1960 Fender Music Master to see the instrument's inner workings. It wasn't long before he was running the body making department at G&L Guitar Company in Fullerton, California.

While at G&L, Currie got to work under the tutelage of music legend Leo Fender, who helped him hone his craft. By 2006 Currie had handmade over 300 unique instruments for a wide range of musicians, giving him the confidence and means to launch EchoPark Guitars.
