Kouga guitars began approximately 35 years ago when Andy started building instruments as a hobby. As his skills and instruments got better people started asking him to build instruments for them as well as the many thousands of repairs he's undertaken. Andy's son james came into the business around 10 years ago and is now an accomplished luthier himself. Around 3 years ago Kouga started as a full time business and has helped many local musicians during this time. Kouga went limited December 19.
