Gary Zimnicki has hand crafted nearly 300 instruments which is something he is very proud of. Few luthiers ever reach that mark. It’s clear that Gary loves his craft and that he knows how to build for tone and exquisite design in equal parts.
Flexibility in the design and construction of custom guitars is what Gary Zimnicki believes helps to set him apart from other builders. His primary goal with each project is to produce an instrument that will perfectly match each customer’s needs and tastes. His customers have the unique opportunity to be as involved as they want in the design of their instrument.
The guitars and mandolins that you will see on his website are a sampling of what he has built for customers over the past 30 years. There are no limits to what he can offer his customers. This approach has allowed him to collaborate on some very unique projects, some of which you will see on his website.
