Meet Jim Howard

Jim built his first guitar when he was 17 years old. He did not realize that it would  be about 30 years later before building his second. In 2004, Jim started Howard Guitars so that he could share these beautiful instruments with others.

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. – Matthew 6:33
