Our History

How it all started

Fritz Brothers Guitars was started in 1988 by my brother John and me in Mobile, Alabama. Since then we have been joined by my beautiful wife, Christy. We are honored to have created custom guitars for some of the "greats," including Aerosmith, George Harrison, Roy Buchanan, Keith Richards, Darryl Jones, Randy Jackson, Gary Moore, Bill Bottrell and the Bangles, to name a few.

Who is Roger Fritz?

Roger Fritz was born in a guitar case at a VFW dance. By age 13 he had built his first guitar from 1/4″ plywood with a 3 color crayon sunburst finish. Another guitar soon followed and another and another. I guess you could say he was a natural born guitar savant.

It’s been over forty years since it all started, and a lot has happened, to say the least. Playing, building, repairing and generally living the guitar for the last 40 years–that pretty much sums it right up. Making and repairing instruments for countless music heroes of course would be enough, but having the pleasure of creating music along the way has been fabulous too! Still, here have been ups and downs along the way.

contented luthiers.''
