My name is Austin Vermont Papp, and I am an independent luthier hailing from NE Ohio.

I own and operate AVP Lutherie here in quaint Hartville, Ohio.

I have been woodworking since a young age, growing up with a carpenter for a father will do that for you. At age 11, my father purchased my first power tool for me, a Dewalt scroll saw, which I still have to this day, in my shop. After High School, I trained at the Galloup School of Lutherie. I specialize in custom guitar designs including: finger-style acoustics, slab bodied electrics, and carved-top semi-hollow electric guitars, though almost nothing is out of the question.
