The Story of AK Guitars
Chief Luthier and Owner, Alex Kovacs, started his journey playing guitar on December 2010. After gaining experience, a burning passion for music, and a love for the guitar itself. In the Fall of 2016; Alex went to Atlanta, Georgia to study luthiery at "Atlanta Guitar Works". Master Luthier's, Brian Malone and Gary Moore, gave a very intense course covering a great head start for making out of this world custom fretted instruments.
While attending "Atlanta Guitar Works"; Alex Kovacs learned how to do complete construction of acoustic, electric, and bass guitars. Starting from as little as a block of wood all the way up to a completed, factory quality appearance, handmade custom instrument. The school also offered a complete overview of fretted instruments to effectively diagnose and repair all issues related to the instrument through the core and out. There is not anything we can't do from a restring to fret level to neck reset to complete replacement pieces and upgrades.
After graduating as a certified luthier; Alex Kovacs went on to gain more hands on experience. Since, March 1st, 2017, AK Guitars was birthed from the passion of many exotic tonewoods unknown to the world to share their beauty and tonality. As well of a drive to really dig deep into each musician to find the intimate specs they crave. AK Guitars currently resides in Birmingham, Alabama ready to make any and all dreams come true worldwide!
