To get a closer look, check them out online at jbacklund.com or visit the company’s showroom at 100 Cherokee Blvd. If you want to buy one, be prepared to pay about the same as you would for a new American Les Paul. Like anything else built well, these guitars are well worth it.
Warrior's 'Wicked-Cool' Axes
South of the border, down Rossville way, lies the realm of Warrior Guitar. From the wooded hills of Northern Georgia come beautiful, custom guitars, painstakingly crafted from the rarest and most exotic woods into the most wicked-cool axes imaginable. Drawing interest from such legendary guitarists as Rick “Rock ‘n’ Roll Hoochie Koo” Derringere, these instruments have the ferocity of a weapon and the style, grace and sexuality of a gorgeous woman.
Building acoustic guitars as well as basses, Warrior has developed a solid reputation for quality. From the distinctly curvaceous and darkly beautiful Koa wood designs of the Queen Anna Acoustic, to the sleek, powerful lines of the solid-body electric, The Texan, these guitars are aesthetically amazing. The artwork that is implemented into the bodies and fretboards —and even worked into the pickup configurations of these guitars—is breathtaking.
Built by J.D. Lewis and his small band of craftsmen, Warrior has established a growing following of dedicated owners.
