About the Luthier

Adam Hanson is a two time graduate of the Red Wing School of Lutherie in Minnesota. Through the years Adam has had the privilege to move throughout the east coast, working in repair shops from New Jersey, Pennsylvania to New Hampshire and Massachusets, studying and analyzing what makes a great instrument.

Having the opportunity to work with a wide range of electric and acoustic hollowbodies, Adam was able to break down what works best in design and begin to reshape the perfect guitar. In 2014 Adam relocated to Washington to open Patriarch Guitars and present Patriarch Guitars to the Northwest music scene.
