Here at Oates guitars, we specializes in high end hollow-body guitars. Based on one design that Daniel Oates perfected in 1995, our guitars are variations on that one design. Our workshop is located in Sharon Connecticut in a typical New England barn.

Daniel Oates founded this guitar company in 2017 although he has been building guitars as a hobby since he was a teenager. His background is in sculpture, toy design and furniture-making and he focuses the skills and experience from these other disciplines in his craftsmanship in his guitars.
