About Bil Mitchell
Bil Mitchell built his first guitar in 1979. That very first guitar began a life long journey in education, consistency, expression, and refinement. Bil Mitchell Guitars are created entirely by hand in his workshop in Pennsylvania.
After attending the Timberline School of Lutherie in 1985, he now specializes in the style of yester-year. Using today’s advancements in guitar making, Bil crafts instruments with aesthetic designs ranging between the Civil war and World War II, plus a contemporary design of his own. What separates his guitars from the rest are his extensive abilities in all aspects of guitar construction from engineering to unique artistic expression, to beautiful lacquer finishes. Exceptional tone woods are not all heoffers.6designs to choose from,0-12 fret, 00-12fret, 000-12 fret, L-00-12 fret, 00-14 fret, 000-14 fret. Plus a mini archtop electric. Custom neck widths, bridge styles, headstock, and scale lengths create the custom palette for a rainbow of hand cut inlays, designed and executed by Bil himself.
In 2003, Bil Started the Guitar Parlor with Sarah Dieterichs which they performed extensive restorations on prewar instruments as well as building hand crafted acoustic and electric guitars. In 2020, he closed the Guitar Parlor down and is now, along with building guitars, teaching guitar building and repair classes at North Hampton Community College in eastern Pennsylvania. If you are ready for something exquisite then Bil Mitchell Guitars are waiting for you!
Life is too short to play cheap guitars!
