Jason Kostal

Jason Kostal was introduced to the world of guitar building by Kent Everett of Everett Guitars in Atlanta, GA, while finishing his MBA at Emory University. Kent’s instruction and experience were paramount in planting the seed that would not reach maturity until years later. Jason pursued a career with a Fortune 500 company, but uninterested in continuing a career in the corporate world, he ultimately made his way to Phoenix, AZ, and the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery. During his 5 months there, Jason continued to learn and grow as a builder and repair technician under the guidance of a first rate staff, and an outstanding group of student peers. Upon graduation, Jason opted to stay on board as an assistant instructor in the acoustic guitar program, where he continued to learn and develop under the guidance of the Director of Training, John Reuter. Along the way, Jason’s fellow instructors continued to teach him and educate him while personal experience began to meld with his formal education to mold and create the guitars that are made today.

Jason spent two and half year as an apprenticeship to Master Luthier Ervin Somogyi. Under Ervin's daily supervision, Jason worked to continually refine his design process, and improve upon the capabilities of his guitars to meet the demanding needs of the musicians. His guitars are the culmination of 28 years of playing experience as a performing fingerstyle guitarist coupled with a desire to make the best possible guitar for discerning musicians that value craftsmanship, attention to detail, and unparalleled sound in a custom built package.
