About us

William Raynaud at the Manor Pub, Brixha

Founded by luthier William Raynaud, WR Guitars Ltd. is a single luthier workshop handcrafting unique and highly desirable electric guitars.


A master builder in his own right, William has built thousands of guitars over the past 15 years in Los Angeles.


While working tirelessly with many prestigious guitar companies as master builder and production manager (James Trussart Guitars, Schecter Custom Shop, Echopark Guitars, Xotic Guitars), William had started his own company, WR Guitars, and was offering Custom Guitar building as well as full on repair services in Los Angeles.


Over the years, he created and repaired guitars for world known artists such as Keith Richards, Paul Simon, Bruno Mars together with musicians working with Pink, Guns N’ Roses, Ariana Grande, Michael Buble, Pat Benatar and many others.


The guitars that William handcrafts are the result of years of playing, repairing and building customized instruments on a daily basis, nothing is ever left out.


William loves to be in touch with his clients/fellow musicians as much as possible while building commissioned instruments, so that a real connection is built around it all.


Don’t ever hesitate to email should you have any ideas or questions on any of the work that is offered.


Thank you for your support in WR Guitars.


William Raynaud.
