Many of you are familiar with John Backlund's fantastic guitar designs, but very few have ever had the opportunity to own one - until now.  We started with the Backlund 100 nine months ago, it has now reached the hands of the supporters and it is getting rave reviews. We followed with the Backlund 200 which is now in production.


Next up is the stunning Backlund 400. John considers this his flagship model, the Backlund 400 advances the state of guitar making in an amazingly responsive instrument and is incredibly well balanced. An incredible achievement in modern guitar design with ultra retro looks!
