Exceptional Hand-Built Guitars

Founded in 2007 and made in the USA, Redentore Guitars (red-n-tor-ray) are meticulously constructed, flawlessly finished, and painstakingly set up, Redentore archtop guitars, carved-top semi acoustic/electrics, the “LJ” (little jazzer), are destined to be classic works of art—both aesthetically and musically!

These instruments are hand built by one man (luthier Mark Piper — nearly 40 years experience) in his own shop in limited numbers. One set of hands and one set of eyes from start to finish. The result is a very beautiful, very playable, rich and even-sounding guitar of exceptional quality. If you have an eye for beauty and an ear for the same, look no farther than Redentore Guitars.

Our mission is to place flawlessly finished, hand-built instruments in the hands of artists and guitar players everywhere.
