Jeff Bamburg is a luthier – a craftsman dedicated to the art and science of building guitars. From his workshop in Salida, CO, Jeff builds beautiful, custom-made guitars by hand using a variety of wood. Self-taught, Bamburg has developed a cult following for his instruments' resonant tones and uniform action.

"I build tools for artists," said Bamburg when Airstream visited his Rocky Mountain Guitar Co. workshop in Salida. For more info, check out our story as part of our Round Trip: Salida, CO feature.

"I build tools for artists."

As for this particular guitar, the Shavano D-14er is named for the strong and loyal chief who led the Tabeguache band of Utes from the 1850s through the 1870s. Shavano played a prominent role as peacemaker throughout his life, and his courage and convictions saved many lives among both his people and the white settlers.
