Hand Made Electric Guitars
Vintage Feel
High Spirit guitars are crafted with a classic vintage feel and aesthetic in mind to capture the spirit of the golden era of guitars. A combination of vintage neck profiles, nitrocellulose finish, hand-selected wood, unique pickup design, and custom hardware give each instrument a unique aesthetic and the sound and soul that set us apart. When we can, we try and make our guitars as unique as possible while still keeping the vintage feel of a classic vintage guitar.

Our Story

High Spirit Guitars was started by Connor Kelly with the intention of combining his love of art, music, and design. After graduating from studying music and art at San Diego State University he began building and designing guitars. Through this natural process and also with the goal of visually trying to achieve a classic look of the guitars of the golden era he has produced some new refreshing guitars that aren't too far from the classics we all love.
