Earnie Bailey is a southern California native, currently residing, designing and building guitars in the Pacific Northwest.
Wire Instruments guitars and basses are designed and built in the U.S.A. employing top shelf components, with one eye on history and the other on contemporary guitar construction. Our guitars use time tested tone woods and hardware from a range makers including Tonepros, Schaller, TV Jones, Seymour Duncan, Hipshot, Sperzel, Fralin and more.
Each instrument begins with a sonic concept followed by artistic vision. Guitar building is an ongoing process of discovery, and we strive to make our instruments as comfortable as a lifelong friend. Each Wire Instruments guitar is individually crafted one at a time, so no two are the same.
