One of the earliest guitar manufacturers in Japan, Guyatone began production in 1933 by cabinet maker's apprentice Mr. Mitsuki. The name "Guyatone" roughly translates to "handy-man music" and began appearing on instruments in 1951, as well as Amplifiers & Cartridges.
In 2013 Guyatone joined forces with DeMont Guitars of Oswego, IL, USA and now manufactures in both the US & Japan.
Guyatone strives to maintain top-quality production of new products as well as remanufactured vintage parts, all produced within Japan and the US.
