After the Johnson Guitars name was “acquired” by overseas manufactures (how many Chinese Guys do you know named “Johnson”?) Rick Johnson, the founder, designer, and builder of Johnson Guitars U.S.A. started to build under the name Stremel, which is a name of family history.

The Stremel line ranges from Traditional designs to modern designs as well. These designs provide outstanding comfort to the player, as well as a great balance and incredible tone.

On the traditional side of the Stremel Line, the guitars offer familiar designs, some with a twist:

    RICK, you helped me get the Technical illustrator job at SEI when you left to make guitars. We met at American Dream Music and you had some new jet guitars you had made. I like your manuals, and we got into conversation. It’s it has been many years and I see you are still making guitars. Do you remember mes? Your dad Fox Johnson was one of the retired admirals at SEI. My number is 858-336-8326 please drop me a note. I became a Civil Engineer, designing roads, sewer, water, grading, surveying, Then became an Electronics Engineer doing printed circuit board design, and now I am a Mechanical Engineer. I use Solidworks 3D modeling. Can we talk?
