Orn Custom Guitars
Gunnar Orn Sigurdsson

Gunnar has been designing and building guitars since 2000. At his workshop in Reykjavik, he works in close conjunction with his customers, sharing his passion and inspiration to provide them with a guitar that is designed to work as an extension of themselves in their guitar playing. Constantly looking for improvements to his designs, he has collaborated with local artists and craftsmen to create guitars that both look and sound beautiful. His guitars are touring the world with some of Iceland’s top bands such as Solstafir, Vintage Caravan and Of Monsters and Men.

Iceland is a small island and I’m the only professional luthier there. It means a great deal to me to have the opportunity to meet up with and talk to colleagues in the field and expand my market outside of my country.

I’ve been fascinated with guitars since I got my first one at the age of 10. I was always interested in the inner workings of these amazing instruments and when life presented me with the opportunity to become a luthier, I jumped at it. I spend my days doing what I love. I live on an island and the Holy Grail Guitar Show gives me a chance to show my guitars to a larger audience and meet up with colleagues in the field. I love what I do and the more people I can share it with, the better.
