Lynn Wheelwright

The world’s renowned expert and experienced collector of primitive vintage electric guitars.

Lynn has always been fascinated with the guitar, especially the craft of building the instrument.

After performing as a teenager, he developed many of his luthier skills from repairing guitars in his own shop.

After befriending Alvino Rey in the 1980s and repairing several of Mr. Rey’s instruments, Lynn began studying the history of vintage guitars.

In recent years he has provided lectures and written articles about vintage guitars all the while researching all he can about the history of the guitar.
