Terry C. McInturff Guitars
Terry built his first guitar in 1977 …a set neck double-cut that featured an unusual (for the time) scale length of 25.125”. It proved to be the original prototype for what became an entire line of McInturff guitars. Terry went on to obtain full-time employment as a luthier in January 1978, and guitars have paid his bills ever since.
Along the way, Terry has installed an estimated 180,000 guitar strings, has worked on and or built over 40,000 stringed instruments, and has …somehow… managed to stay somewhat sane in the process.
While it is commonplace for luthiers of Terry’s ability to use only the finest tonewoods from around the world, it is really Terry’s unique design methodologies and acclaimed handskills that have netted his work rave reviews in virtually all of the guitar magazines that matter. He has been featured on the covers of Guitar Player and Guitarist magazines, interviewed on National Public Radio, has been awarded two Guitar Player Magazine “Editor’s Pick Awards” and has a client list that includes Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Brad Whitford, Brad Delson, Audley Freed, David Hidalgo, Chuck Garvey, Marshall Crenshaw, and many others.
