About me

Welcome to Grace Guitars

My name is Tracy Gryger.  My interest in designing and building guitars started when I was introduced to master inlay artist, Dave Nichols, owner of Custom Pearl Inlay.  I took  his inlay course and then his guitar building course.  Dave has been incredibly generous with his wealth of knowledge and through his teachings I have learned to build solid, beautiful instruments.

My goal in building is to design a guitar that represents the player.  Further, I want to build a guitar that has personality, not only musically but visually.  It seems to me that most of the guitars being built today have a masculine feel to them.   There aren’t many guitars that are designed with women in mind. My goal is to solve that problem by designing guitars specifically sized for women with a more feminine style and grace.
