"I remember the first time I played one of Eric's custom guitars. All I could think was, I have to have one. I decided I'd better pull the trigger before someone buys it online. I picked it up the next morning. That guitar and I are an inseparable couple. Such an incredibly inspiring instrument!"

Wil Bailey
Seattle, Wash.

"Can't say enough good things about Eric Daw's 'Pin-Up Custom Guitars.'  Mine is the closest thing I've personally found to being anything like a real vintage 50's guitar, but without the vintage guitar price tag"

Darin Jones
Jones and Fischer

"I'm a player in Seattle with many guitars. Problems with them would go to Eric, large and small, he brought extensive experience, straight-forward communication and a can-do attitude.  He's got it, and he brings it, every time."

Steve Peterson
Seattle, Wash.

"Eric's integrity, knowledge, and skill are all top drawer.  You simply won't go wrong with him, regardless of whether you're looking for a good set up, need an almost impossible repair, or are in the market for a good custom piece."

Clyde Platt
British Columbia, Canada

"Eric has worked on my guitars since the 90's.  I'm sure he's one of the best in the country"

Rick Trulson
Idaho Falls, Idaho

"Eric makes guitars that remind me of the real vintage guitars, and that's what appeals to me. I own several, and they are my main instruments, I play them all the time, on stage and off."

"Over the years, my friend Eric Daw has had his hands on probably every one of my guitars. He always makes things better and brightens my day. I feel lucky to know him."
