Guitar Habitat® delivered to Wayne Henderson

June 10th, 2016

On June 10, 2016 American Music Furniture Company co-founder Darrell Jennings delivered a Guitar Habitat® to Wayne Henderson at his home in Mouth of Wilson, VA.   Wayne is a world renowned luthier.

Henderson’s guitars are inspired by the great pre-World War II guitars of C.F. Martin & Company, and are hand-built in limited quantities; by October 2012, over five hundred Henderson guitars had been constructed.

In a 1995 White House ceremony, he was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship[1] in recognition of his extraordinary instrument-making. The book Clapton’s Guitar: Watching Wayne Henderson Build the Perfect Instrument (2005) outlined the process by which Henderson built a guitar for Eric Clapton.[2] In 2008 he was the subject of an Appalshop documentary, From Wood to Singing Guitar.

We are extremely honored to have Wayne’s guitars on display in one of our Guitar Habitat® cabinets.
