#FJFest: Irvin Guitars

Wayne Johnson of Bremerton, Washington’s Irvin Guitars shared this quick tour of his shop for #FJFest. Wayne studied at the Sergei de Jonge’s School of Lutherie and builds exquisite flattop guitars in his shop on the Kitsap Peninsula. Wayne was looking forward to exhibiting at the La Conner Guitar Festival, which was initially rescheduled but recently canceled. You can order custom instruments via Wayne’s website, where you can also find instruments that are available now. You can also follow Wayne on the Instagram.

Needless to say, we understand why Wayne’s proud of the logo his daughter designed for him.
