“I am a husband, father, and hobby rancher on the winds wet plains of North Dakota. Although I am not a guitar player myself,I was instantly intrigued by this varied and unique craft, and thus the journey began. While I spend my days in the oil fields outside Boomtown, USA, my nights and weekends are spent crafting Beau Theige Custom Guitars. If you want to get trendy, it's called "upcycling."Each is handcrafted, inspired by everyday utilitarian objects,antiques, or plain old junk. Half art, half instrument,that's the fun part, folks: You never can tell what I'll end up with. Join me for the ride, and let's see what we can come up with next!”
