Andersen Stringed Instruments
Instruments currently built in Seattle, WA since 1978. Instruments available through luthier Steven Andersen and Pioneer Music in Portland, OR.
Luthier Steven Andersen built his first guitar in 1973 and has earned his living solely as a guitar and mandolin maker since 1978. Andersen specializes in custom building to meet the player's needs. Andersen works alone, and builds approximately 16 to 18 instrumnets a year. His instruments have been sold throughout the U.S. as well as over a dozen other countries. He does not have any endorsers, but several famed musicians haved purchased his instruments such as Sam Bush and Steve Miller. Between 1982 and 1994, Andersen produced over 100 Gibson F-style mandolins. Since 1994, he has focused on the A-style and he is currently toying with his own variation of the F-5 mandolin. Andersen introduced a program called "Fresh Fish." Every now and then, he will build a guitar that isn't part of his regular backlog. He does this to build new instruments that may not be to spec and have other features different than his standard models. Andersen keeps a listing of these guitars on his website.
