Rauen Guitars Masters of Restoration and Repair

Specializing in Repair and Restoration

Denny Rauen is a master luthier and considered to be one of the finest in the world. He's been building, restoring, repairing and modifying string instruments for over 40 years.

Denny's new book DO-IT-YOURSELF Guitar Setup and Maintenance written for musicians! Everything you need to know about keeping your guitar in tip-top shape. Published by Hal Leonard.  

In 1981 as a 28 year old rookie, Denny had the good fortune to hang out and chat with the legendary Leo Fender and discuss his Multi-Radius (compound-radius) innovation.

Denny is the person behind inventing the compound radius fretboard, which provides guitar players with great mobility for string bending. It was in 1978 when this idea came to light and later shared for the entire luthier community to use. Before he invented this fretboard for guitar, nobody used a conical-shaped fingerboard to help in bending notes.

As a skilled guitar craftsman, Denny is a highly experienced professional who has worked with the best in the business. The experience he has far outmatches what custom guitar services are out there. In fact, he was featured as one of the nation's finest luthiers by the Guitar Player Magazine in 1988.

Wordless songs of the soul written with a pluck and twang telling the stories of life. Compositions inspired by Denny’s first 68 laps around the sun and a career working on instruments for some of the top guitarists in the world.
