Greg Goodnight 12 String & 6 String

To all who are looking into a Lawler guitar. I first met Donnie Lawler in 1994. It didn't take me long to realize what an expert wood craftsman that he was and he continues to get better as the years go by. I had Donnie custom build me an acoustic 12 string in 1995. I was stunned at the beautiful quality of workmanship as well as the excellent tone and playability. I have played this guitar very regularly over the years and it just keeps getting sweeter sounding. In 2005 I had Donnie build me a custom 6 string out of West Texas Juniper wood. I brought him the rough logs to build it out of and 6 months later he presented me with a master piece. This guitar is truly a work of art. It has a beautiful mellow tone and plays like a dream. I have received countless compliments on both of my Lawler guitars, and I have experienced great joy and satisfaction from owning and playing these guitars.

Dear Mr. Lawler,
My father, Blas Torres bought me one of your guitars. The following is my testimony:
As a beginner guitarist, I wanted something that sounded great and was easy to play. This guitar is way more. It performs well with high, middle and low tones and is extremely easy to play. Visually the quilted maple is beautiful. Awesome craftsmanship!

Thanks, Seth Torres

By far, the best guitar I have ever played was one built by Donnie Lawler!

His attention to detail and craftsmanship far exceed any acoustics I’ve ever seen.

Donnie is also a fair and honest man and would most definitely stand behind anything he lays his hands on! If you want a truly great guitar, look no further!!
