Their love for string instruments has led them to opening a shop inside the Branson Mill Craft Village. Together they own Hickory Hollow Guitars Shop and are building guitars under the Hickory Hollow Guitars brand producing custom guitars that have a tone all of their own. The one of a kind tone has caught the attention of many pickers. Their guitars come in different price points; the traditional model has a solid wood Tilia body and a Sitka Spruce top. Higher end models can be special ordered with rosewood and mahogany bodies. So what makes a Hickory Hollow Guitar unique…”It’s all about the tone.” Rich and Jim say their tone is different. “It’s rich, crisp and true all the way down.”
Hickory Hollow sells many other brand names like Kona guitars, Stelling Banjos, and custom made Davis Guitars, Fiddles and Mandolins. They also repair stringed instruments and sell accessories like strings, bridges, and Tune keys. Every Tuesday and Saturday at 10am, you can join other locals and pick your favorite Bluegrass and Gospel tunes on the Hickory Hollow Pickin’ Porch. You can take this opportunity to hear the distinct tone of the Hickory Hollow Guitar! This is an ACOUSTIC ONLY jam session. Bring your favorite instrument and do a little picking and grinning!
The Branson Mill is a 40,000 square foot craft village with working demonstrators and item galore for purchase!
