Wilkins Guitars was founded by Pat Wilkins in 1984 after having received extensive training in luthiery at the renowned Schecter Guitars of California from 1976 to 1982. For the next two years he worked in a repair shop next to the world famous Normans Rare Guitars where he learned the art of making world class players’ instruments work to very exacting specifications. It was there next to Norm’s that he had the opportunity to play and repair many vintage and specialized instruments. It is that love of finely crafted instruments that drives him to this day to create basses and guitars that are the players’ first choice in feel and tonality. We are proud that these guitars are made in the USA with parts made here in America and crafted in our shop in Southern California about 3 miles from the legendary Schecter shop that started it all back in the mid 70’s.
