Wallace Detroit Guitars

Detroit History Makes Music Even Richer
Handcrafted, high-quality, and made from the heart of the Motor City, Wallace Detroit Guitars are the perfect gift for the music lover or Detroit fanatic in your life. These beautiful electric guitars are made from reclaimed wood responsibly harvested from abandoned homes in Detroit. The wood used in the guitar body is pine and often over 100 years old, giving the guitars a vintage sound and impressive sustain. Wallace Detroit Guitars even provides the address where each guitar’s material was found, tying the instrument even closer to the city. From the maple neck to the repurposed seatbelt strap, Wallace Detroit guitars are Michigan made and allow guitar enthusiasts to hold a piece of Detroit history in their hands.

These guitars can be custom ordered - a three month process - or ordered online. Wallace Detroit Guitars have ten guitars ready to meet holiday demand and will hold a sale online featuring the ready-to-shop stock. Not sure which to choose? Gift cards are also available for purchase.
