Iris Guitar Company: Timeless Craftsmanship at Russo Music

Russo Music is thrilled to present the exquisite blend of vintage design and modern construction that is the Iris Guitar Company. Established in 2018 as an offshoot of Circle Strings, Iris Guitar Company is renowned for its impeccable craftsmanship. The small team of seasoned luthiers combines traditional techniques with modern innovation to produce high-quality, affordable instruments.

Masterful Craftsmanship

Iris Guitar Company has rapidly earned a reputation for the unparalleled skill and precision behind each of its instruments. Handmade by a dedicated team of experienced luthiers, Iris guitars embody an ideal balance of age-old craftsmanship and state-of-the-art techniques. The guitars are inspired by depression-era flattops and admired designs from the mid-century, with a keen emphasis on producing a vintage-inspired tone that appeals to the modern musician.

Thoughtful Material Selection

Tonewood selection is central to Iris Guitar’s philosophy. With a grounding in traditional mahogany and rosewood, Iris is not afraid to experiment. Optional tonewoods include Big Leaf Maple, Figured Cherry, old stock and figured Mahogany, Walnut and more. Top woods include reclaimed redwood, Euro Spruce, Adi Spruce both torrefied and not, and many more. The careful selection and combination of materials ensure each guitar’s resonance and depth of tone. Furthermore, the finishing process of an Iris guitar is art in itself; it maintains the simplicity and aesthetic elegance of the yesteryear instruments that inspire the line.
