Morningstar Glass Guitars©. 2019

If you want a Gibson, buy a Les Paul. If you want a Telecaster, talk to Fender. If you want a glass guitar you're in the right place. My goal is not to build glass replicas of well known guitars. My goal is to build glass guitars that are as enjoyable to play as they are to admire. While I take inspiration from popular designs, the medium that I work with requires a different approach to the design process. I have two signature models to choose from.
