Gibson Acoustic Master Luthier Ren Ferguson Retires

(Gibson) After 25 years of service to Gibson Guitar's acoustic division, Master Luthier Ren Ferguson has retired from the company. Ferguson joined Gibson when, in 1986, the company acquired Flatiron Mandolin, where he was head luthier. For the last quarter-century, he has spearheaded building and design for Gibson Acoustic in Bozeman, Montana.

"I will always be a Gibsonite at heart," Ferguson said. "These guitars are a part of who I am. The tradition of decorative art that are a hallmark of Gibson fits perfectly with my interests in engraving and carving."

Gibson would like to extend our sincere and deep appreciation to Ferguson for his years of commitment, passion and tireless enthusiasm for the acoustic guitars built in Bozeman.

"What we've learned from Ren combined with the support from Gibson allows us to continue crafting the highest quality acoustic instruments," said Dennis O'Brien, general manager for Gibson Acoustic. "We are blessed to have enjoyed his energy, optimism and humor for the past 25 years. He will always be a friend to Gibson." more on this story
