There is a reason that legendary guitarist Rick Derringer has a guitar named after him at Warrior; Because the guitar is legendary.
Warrior Guitars are unparalleled handmade instruments for professionals, collectors, and enthusuasts.
The following words are on all Warrior Guitar links on our site.
We have the largest selection of new Warrior Guitars anywhere in the world. Why? Glad you asked...
Because Warrior Guitars are one of the best guitars in the world.
As a guitar store owner, I've sold thousands of guitars. I've literally bought and sold more high end, one of a kind, boutique guitars than 99% of all guitar dealers in America, or around the world. (You can see from our inventory on this site that this is not an exaggeration.)
I have a huge personal guitar collection (that are not listed for sale on our site.) I have been playing and teaching guitar for decades. I've travelled to countless guitar shows, visited factories, met with reps...etc., etc., etc.
I tell you these "credentials" - not to brag - but to impress upon you: When I tell you, "Warrior Guitars are some of the best sounding, finest looking, and best playing guitars that mankind has ever heard, seen, or played..." it's not hyperbole. It's not exaggeration. It is the truth.
But don't just take my word for it.
Here is a testimony of a Warrior customer of mine:
"My family owns a TV, movie, and sound recording studio. We play music professionally. We have a small collection of guitars (around 50) as well as other instruments.
"The first time I played a Warrior Guitar I was so blown away, that I did something crazy: I piled the whole family in the car and drove 6 hours to visit the Warrior Shop where Warriors are hand made. And then, we were all blown away.
"The long story made short is this: Thanks to Lou, and the Founding Members the Warrior Family, we are PROUD owners of Warrior Guitars. In our band - with 3 guitarists and 1 bass (besides other instruments) we ALL play Warrior instruments. We traded two Gibsons, two Fenders, a Rickenbacker, and multiple other high-end boutique guitars, so that we could own and play Warriors. I told my boys: 'You have reached the top of the guitar food chain! The only way up from here is more Warriors!'
"The look, the feel, the inlays, the craftsmanship, the electronics, the tonal options, how they fit in your hands and body...the VIBE that comes from these guitars makes it easy for me to urge you to get your first...or second...or third Warrior.
"I still have a beautiful collection of guitars, all of which I enjoy. But the ones that get picked up and played - day after day , whether for practice or for live gigs - are the Warriors. Get one, and you'll understand why!"
Thanks for that testimony from my customer!
A final thought: As you look at these Warriors, some of which are quite expensive, you have to remember that you are now in the Rembrant section of the guitar world. Yes, you can get other fine instruments - I sell them, and I own them - but once you come into the Warrior section, you are in a realm of instrument that is all its own. And when you see "The Crown of Thorns" or "The Temptation" or the "Crusades" or the "We Will Not Forget 9/11" guitar, you will understand that these are masterpieces in art. PLAYABLE art!
And REMEMBER: Warriors are HAND MADE. ONE AT A TIME. No computer program. No mold. That is why each one is so unique...the human touch.
So when I tell you AGAIN, "Warrior Guitars are among the best sounding, finest looking, and best playing guitars EVER MADE ANYWHERE," it is not an exaggeration. It is the fact as I see it.
That is why we have the largest selection of new Warrior Guitars anywhere in the world. Happy browsing, and buying. Call me with any questions!
