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.

Martin Guitars

On November 6, 1833, 179 years ago, C. F. Martin Sr., accompanied by his wife, Ottilie K�hle Martin; their son and daughter; C. F.'s father and C.F.'s brother-in-law, set on their journey to America. The family promptly set up shop at 196 Hudson Street in the German section of New York City. From there, the long legacy of building Martin guitars began. Their 180th year commences in 2013. Hill Country Guitars is proud to be part of a legacy by carrying C. F. Martin guitars. We stock the Golden Era, Marquis, and Vintage lines.

Hill Country Guitars New Austin Store

It has been taking a while to get this all going. We have the permits now for the remodel of the building we bought this past December. It just takes time to get through the Austin permit process when you are working with an old house like this. Remodel work should start the last week of June and we are looking for an opening date sometime in August. We will try to post some pictures of the process. Check out our facebook page for the pictures.
