Ish loves V8 Custom Guitars

We go beyond your typical guitar store. Each instrument is inspected at our in-house luthier shop before, during, and after its stay with us.


Fantastic company. Answered my email promptly and shipped very quickly! I highly recommend Ish Guitars!

Robert, PRS Custom 24 Piezo

Awesome transaction! I bought a pretty special guitar (previously owned by a famous guitarist), and Ish nailed it. Ethical dealer, quick ship, and fast responses. I look forward to doing business with them again in the future!

Devin, L'arrivee D-60

Awesome guitar. Came with a perfect setup and no issues. Would love to buy another guitar from you guys.
