Aaron Younce

Hi, I'm Aaron. I'm a guitar maker and repairman by trade, and a musician and stage guitar tech by night. I began studying luthiery in my early teenage years, and I've been a musician for about as long. Prior to forming a business partnership with Benjamin here in New Orleans, I was a luthier and production manager at Fodera Guitars in Brooklyn, NY. My past work experience also includes San Francisco Guitarworks in San Francisco, CA and Carvin/Kiesel Guitars in San Diego, CA. I have a degree in Recording Arts, and I've spent countless hours in recording studios and out on the road with various bands throughout the years. When my hands aren't on a guitar, I'm probably out riding motorcycles somewhere...
