Alquier Guitars

For every guitar Jean-Yves Alquier builds, each tells a story.

Passion, grit and a good dose of philosophy find their way into Alquier’s electric and acoustic guitars, producing phenomenal sound. As a means to discharge, unfettered creativity, Alquier also builds mind-blowing concept guitars.

France’s President Hollande recognized Alquier as a master guitar builder and bestowed him with the distinguished MOF award in 2014.

Looking for a way to reduce the industry‘s carbon footprint, Alquier pioneered techniques to produce a CO2 neutral guitar. The result is the eco-responsible Ethiq guitar line built entirely out of bamboo.

Alquier’s instruments are all custom made and start at $3,000. He only uses nonexotic wood as well as bamboo.
