Peter "Max" Baranet is a world-renowned guitar builder and expert. The Max brand of guitar is known for its superior hand-crafted quality and materials. Max used aged Honduran mahogany and Brazilian rose wood that was often over 100 years old to build guitars - materials which are no longer available anywhere in the world. These materials, plus hide glue bindings and nitrocellulose lacquer, combined to produce the perfect 1950s vintage guitar sound.
Max passed away in March of 2023 at the age of 70 and left behind a legacy that will last for ages to come. A select number of his guitars are still available, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
