Banker Guitars, named after Matt Hughes’s time as a banker, only makes at most 50 guitars a year out of his small workshop in North Georgia. Matt’s priority is to offer a more holisitic experience, aiming to get to know his customer in order to specifically tailor each instrument to the players wants and demands. His list of clientele already includes Marcus King and Blackberry Smoke, so it’s easy to see why his work is highly regarded.
