Sao Paolo, Brazil (December 1, 2016) -- After more than 35 years of guitar building, Claudio Ortiz, renowned guitar designer and builder, is bringing his exceptional instruments to the US market. Until now, these instruments were available under the Spanish brand almost exclusively in Brazil. Now having changed the name to one with a more global appeal, guitars by The Stone Guitar Company are now available to guitar stores across America.
The range initially comprises of 4 models, Revenge, California, Liberty and Crossroads, all available in a range of colours and materials with many custom options.

The company makes their own pickups, each set wound to meet the physical characteristics of the model they are fitted to. Other options from Bare Knuckles and Seymour Duncan are also available.
