Throughout the guitar I have included sterling silver. Inside the rosette I have crushed coal and copper. With the Long Dark guitars, I am playing with the idea of what's valuable.
Since 2016, JOI Guitars has passionately crafted a distinctive line of guitars, aptly named Long Dark Guitars. These instruments have resonated deeply with enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike. What truly sets these guitars apart is the incorporation of wood subjected to a natural tinting process—an extraordinary journey spanning thousands of years. This organic transformation not only bestows each guitar with a distinct character but also mirrors our fascination with the concept of 'unearthing'. Each Long Dark guitar serves as a testament to our meticulous material selection, ensuring a seamless union of artistry and the timeless beauty inherent in the essence of every instrument.
