Hand*made | ‘han-(d)-mad’ | adj: made by hand rather than machine
“I believe that a production line is a type of machine which produces ‘units’; while a guitar built by a single craftsman remains unique – a piece of art. Each Franklin guitar is a personal expression; hence, my signature on every label. Furthermore, since I only produce a small number of guitars, each is more valuable than those which are mass produced.” – Nick Kukich
Franklin Guitars are the work of master luthier Nick Kukich, who has more than four decades of guitar building experience behind him. Prior to building your guitar, Nick will discuss wood selection, appointments and options with you, as well as your set-up preferences. He hand carves each neck individually, taking into account your hand size, playing style, and preference. Fulfilling a specific request regarding the size or profile (low “C” or “V”-shaped) of the neck is no problem. All necks have an adjustable truss-rod, accessible through the top of the peghead. The new design allows you to make the adjustment without removing the strings.
