Ricky Barlow attended Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in 2009. There he learned the fundamental necessities of guitar building (Luthiery). From there he became employed by Paul Reed Smith Guitars. Both his education and his influence from PRS provided him the opportunity to offer an instrument that excels in beauty, playability, craftsmanship, and tone. Barlow Guitars is owned and operated by Ricky Barlow where he handles everything: purchasing, planning, constructing, sanding, the smallest of details, and even the emails.
“When you buy an instrument from me it is personal. From the starting point of shaping a wood blank all the way to its final polish, I take immense pride in what I am offering, and I know you will experience that as soon as you open the case for the very first time.” ~ Ricky Barlow
