Jeff Traugott is a custom guitar maker based in Santa Cruz, California producing some of the finest acoustic guitars available today.

Hi! Thank you for visiting my website. My shop is located in an old industrial building in Santa Cruz, California that houses a diverse community of artisans and craftspeople. I make about 12 guitars a year, which allows me to focus on tone, playability and the highest quality craftsmanship. Because I build the guitars myself I am able to maintain a very personal relationship with my customers. Please don't hesitate to call or write with any questions, I look forward to working with you!

Builders like Jeff have helped raise the standards of our craft to the highest levels ever. There have never been guitars built on Earth as good as the ones being built today.
