Hewett Harp Guitar - Tree of Life Inlay

Hewett Hand Carved Archtops

Welcome to Hewett Guitars

James Hewett, a native Texan, began building acoustic guitars in 1993. He is a self-taught luthier who naturally gravitated to the craft through his love for music, his passion for great acoustic instruments, his innate understanding of woods, and his gift for working with his hands. Today, he works full-time building custom acoustic guitars, hand-carved arch top jazz guitars, and harp guitars. In addition, he performs full-scale repairs and restorations for six Houston-area guitar stores.
