Yona Custom OMSH guitar handcrafted in Tennessee by Denise Schweers

Denise Schweers and Roger Hausmann have documented the building of two acoustic guitars over a period of one year, working mainly on weekends. Without much prior experience and only with instructions from YouTube and from guitar building books, they tackled all the challenges of designing, constructing and finishing these instruments in the Roger’s Bulldog-Guitars shop in Tennessee. Headstock Bear inlay made after a photo taken at Cade’s Cove, TN. Cades Cove is an isolated valley located in the Tennessee section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, USA. The name YONA comes from the Cherokee Indian word for “Little Bear”. Check out the details of Denise’s guitar.
