"My new Irvin guitar just keeps opening up as I play it. Great dynamic range. It holds the passion of songs together when I surge then rings true and clear in my most intimate moments. It helps me push beyond my capabilities. What a gift!" - Eric Stephen Bocks


Irvin SJ

The Irvin SJ is a small jumbo guitar designed to be an explosive and versatile instrument.  It has the fingerstyle player in mind, yet gives them the capability to let the full sound of a sweet strum hang in the air for as long as they want it to.

what others are saying

"The first time I picked up an Irvin guitar, I knew I was holding something special. The attention to detail, the solid craftsmanship and stunning tone captured me immediately.  I feel like I am creating art with a piece of art in my hands. It is truly inspiring."  after a recent concert, "It sounded AMAZING! Much better than any acoustic I have played on a live stage!" -  Stephen Leiweke - Yackland Studio - Nashville, TN 

"It doesn't get any better than this. I have no critique for this guitar."  -  Daniel Kohavi - "Autulume" and check out his band; "Wildeyes band"

"In addition to being visually beautiful, what I love about Irvin Guitars is their sheer playability.  Acoustic feel with the ease of an electric.  Luthier, Wayne Johnson has a keen eye for detail without complicating things.  He knows when to let the beauty of the wood shine through." - Grant Ferris - Nashville based guitarist and composer.  

"In a world where acoustic guitar builders are typically rehashing designs of yersteryear, Wayne brings something new and interesting. Functional necks and super balanced response across the fretboard makes his guitars really stand out."  - Austin Fields,  Nashville musician
