About Delaney Guitars: Delaney Guitars was founded by Mike Delaney, a guitarist who has played rock, blues, soul, rhythm & blues, and funk for 40 plus years from Los Angeles to Atlanta and shared the stage with many big names in the industry. Mike began experimenting with the guitar building process in October 1999 out of frustration with inconsistencies in workmanship and quality that he found in the mass-produced guitars available in stores. Using his woodworking background along with his experience as a guitarist, Mike started building his own guitars. Other musicians took notice and started asking Mike to build guitars for them. He hasn't stopped since.
