Erlewine Guitars produces exceptionally fine custom electrics for performing artists the world over. For these players, a mass-produced guitar just isn’t enough.
The Erlewine Automatic (pictured above) features our own micro-adjustable bridge for precision tuning. From tuners to control knobs, all hardware is the finest available. Select woods are chosen for beauty and optimum sustain. We spare no effort in giving you the finest workmanship and attention to every detail in producing your guitar.

The Automatic is truly an artist’s guitar. With updated classic lines and an intensely flamed carved top, it’s a good choice for your custom instrument. Combine the automatic’s look and balance with your personal preference of hardware and pickups.
Tone: you can set up the Automatic with any electronics you like, but we’ll be happy to give you suggestions. We liked the way Mark Knopfler used the Erlewine Automatic for that famous starting riff on Dire Straits’ “Money For Nothing.”

We can create the guitar of your dreams! If you’re thinking about a custom instrument, talk with Mark Erlewine personally:
