CURBOW
Instruments previously built in Morgantown, GA between 1994 and 2008.
Luthier Greg Curbow studied electronics and drafting in the 1970s and 1980s, and he opened Midnight Music in Atlanta when he was 23. In 1988, he did some emergency tech work for Jimmy Page when he performed in Atlanta. Curbow was then hired to be Page's guitar tech for the rest of the tour. Curbow then opened Curbow String Instruments. By the mid-1990s, they were selling over 100 instruments a year, but they scaled back production significantly in the 2000s so they could focus on building instruments for specific players. Curbow basses and guitars were hand-crafted directly at the Curbow workshop in the North Georgia mountains. Curbow also has the Curbow School of Lutherie to teach and instruct the art of building, repairing, and restoring guitars, and he designed a line of basses that were produced by Cort Guitars. Greg Curbow died of a brain tumor on August 13, 2005, and luthier Doug Somervell became the main builder for Curbow. However, it appears that Curbow is no longer producing instruments and the status of Curbow instruments is unknown.
