Comments from Zachary Guitar owners and fans

Alex has single handedly redefined what guitars ought to be!!! He's basically reinvented a number of the classic styles (Fenders and Gibsons) love that Z-Bird, and even the Dano), but what makes it all possible is his Passion for what he does!!! Frankly, my attitude is that if there's no passion, it's a waste of life!!! Alex is an original, and I wouldn't have it any other way!!! Love Y'all, Bobby Simcox

Just spent some time looking through your site, smiling at the words, and speechless at the photos. Just stunning. Congratulations on adding something worthwhile to the world.   Tony

Alex, I know what it means to be truly passionate and to give your all to something. You make the greatest electric guitars in the world. That is the end of the fucking story. With every guitar you make, you kill a hundred stinkin', fuckin' rats and thousand tone-dead, so-called, "guitars" deader than a doornail. Keep up the good work and enjoy your nasty self. Burn 'em, Alex; burn 'em all.

Hi Alex,
A friend of mine has one of your guitars which he loves very much. He turned me on to your site. Taking a look I was surprized to see your Pier 1 guitar. I actually have that dining set that you mentioned as inspiration for that color. Do you still have that guitar (260201)?
Please send me a demo tape if you still have any.
I really like what you are doing. Don't let the bastards get you down.           -- Marc, Chicago, IL

Hey, I stumbled onto your sight a few days ago and must say I'm very impressed. It's refreshing to see a guitar builder who isn't trying to re-invent the Strat for the billionth time, and most of the few other guitar builders who actually try something different end up with some ridiculous results ( I won't mention any names). Oh well, I give them credit for trying. And I agree very much with your building philosophies. After looking in to some reviews and references, you got me pretty interested in a Z2.            - Sam

Artsruments,         Man, I am an artist, and conneseur of fine art work of sorts, and I seriously think that you should have some of these guitars in an art gallery... I really mean it man, these are beautiful instruments, and if I could afford it, I would buy one. It appears that one or three of these really were made by God! James A.

Finally A guitar maker with brains and balls,   AS

I set out on a quest a couple of years ago, to find the greatest guitars ever built upon the face of the earth, not knowing or caring that such a thing even existed. I found what I was looking for in Zachary Guitars. I think that if any honest person looks inside himself, he will find a giant Z tattooed on the front of his soul.

Put those major manufacturers over a barrel and introduce them to your Samurai headstock. Good luck and keep up the good work. Sincerely, Jay

Devotion to brand gives confidence to those without enough confidence to buy and use a guitar or amp that doesn't conform to what marketers say is the type to own. (form someone on a newsgroup)
