Podcast 204: Jon “Sully” Sullivan of Sully Guitars

Sully Guitars founder Jon “Sully” Sullivan has had quite a journey: from growing up in Chicago, to attempting to be a rock star on the Sunset Strip, to building electric guitars full-time in Little Elm, Texas. Along the way, he raised a kid as a single parent, took on a few day jobs, taught dozens of aspiring builders how to make a guitar of their own, co-hosted the Luthierist podcast and eventually collaborated with one of his heroes, Grover Jackson. On this week’s Fretboard Journal Podcast, we talk to Sully about all his evolution as a guitarmaker, his decision to manufacture a series of guitars in South Korea (Sully’s Conspiracy line), his influential social media presence and a lot more.
