News and Events

Allison Instruments

Since 2003, John Allison has called Austin, Texas his instrumental home, but that year does not mark the beginning of his instrumental history. John Allison has been building and repairing guitars and other instruments for nearly 30 years. Though a native Texan, John spent a number of years living in Colorado, Minnesota and Illinois, where he cultivated an interest in and trained for a lifelong career as a luthier. He returned to Texas in 1991 and has been living and working in Austin ever since. After an extended tenure with Collings Guitars, he resumed work on his own line of acoustic and electric guitars. Within a few years, his guitar business outgrew the converted garage it was residing in. Now, Allison Instruments inhabits a small business park space about 10 minutes from downtown Austin.
