My name is Ryan, and I am the sole builder and proprietor. I love guitars, music, and working with quality wood. I enjoy each aspect of building: from selecting materials & designing, to working with wood, & finally playing a completed instrument. With each project I strive to maintain a uniqueness specific to that particular instrument; looking for a good marriage of the materials and design. It's not uncommon that the wood works the woodworker; letting grain lines & wood figure.. suggest profile lines, carving approaches, or inlay ideas. I'm becoming particularly interested in carving lap steels in an abstract manner that presents an element of sculpture and three dimensionality to the guitar.

The Gallery page offers photos and testimonials of past builds, mostly lap steels. Some albums will offer an audio stream as well, & I intend to make samples more available with current and future builds.

The Products page allows me to personally post specs, pics, price estimates, and the projected posting date for guitars that I'm finishing for sale. Thanks for visiting!

    These hard wood lap steel guitars are embellished with abalone and turquoise. The color of these vibrant woods is brought out with the careful finishing. These guitars also sound great! Rukavina Guitars also makes custom pick ups. Quality work from start to finish.

    Expert craftsmanship! Absolute pieces of art!
    groundswell (69 reviews)

    Rukavina Guitars makes some of the finest solid body electric guitars I've had the pleasure of seeing in my lifetime. The work and craftsmanship alone are worth the small price of the guitars. The custom made ones are some of my favorites. If you're looking for an electric guitar or lap steel guitar look no further, get a genuine piece of art work today from Rukavina Guitars.
