STR Guitars are created by Satoru Yatsuzuka, the master luthier at our Aska factory in Japan. It is the successor factory of our original Headway factory established in 1977. We have been manufacturing both our own brands and OEM products of domestic and foreign high-end guitar makers for over 35 years, with the principle of complete handcrafting. The factories have been renowned for high quality craftsmanship and exquisite level of detail in guitar building.
We started STR guitars in 2006 to embody Satoru’s relentless pursuit for creating instruments that surpasses the player’s imagination, built to the highest level of precision, quality, tone and with the best available material. Satoru is deeply involved with every stage of the intricate manufacturing process from selection and processing of woods to setting up of the instruments.
