A BRIEF HISTORY OF MORGAN GUITARS
Welcome to Morgan. The continuing story of a great guitar-making dynasty that stretches over 150 years, from 1860s Madrid to a small workshop on Canada’s rugged west coast.
Since 1985, guitar builder David Iannone has upheld the rich traditions of a long line of expert craftsmen. It’s a tireless search for the finest materials and the endless pursuit of a peerless attention to detail. An intricate dance of consciousness, technique, and effort – using knowledge only gained by decades of experience. The result is superior handcrafted instruments sought by discerning musicians worldwide.
Fewer than 100 guitars a year emerge from his shop. Each one hand-signed by the maker himself, a personal process that guarantees unmatched beauty and uncompromising sound.
In a world where so much is made by heartless robots, it’s comforting to know each Morgan is made by a caring set of experienced human hands – and deeply connected to the guitars, guitarists and guitar makers that came before it.
So get your own hands on a Morgan. Become part of our story.

We are excited to launch a brand new website. We have had the good fortune to work with 2 great guys on this project- Paul Jarvis, our web designer and Sarah Iannone who has been responsible for the writing.
