Sarah Gallenberger: Guitar Artist

Sarah Gallenberger creates unique, one-of-a-kind designs and paints them by hand on custom, one-of-a-kind guitars.

“I love painting guitars because to me, a stage is the ultimate multi-sensory art gallery.” She states when asked how she got into this niche line of work.

She been associated with Fender since 2015 and Gretsch since 2012. “I’ve worked with musicians for the last 15 years and I feel as though I have a good understanding of what they like, and the projects come together naturally.”

Ken of Larc en Ciel (one of the most famous bands in Japan) plays 2 of Sarah’s Fender custom shop guitars.

Sarah is currently working on new designs through this year. We’ll look forward to seeing new custom guitars with custom art at this next year’s NAMM show 2020 in Anaheim, CA. You can also check out Sarah’s prior designs from past years, here.

I saw some of these in person at NAMM! They are gorgeous. Thanks for showcasing her work. I checked out her website and it’s really impressive (with a staggering client list). Sarah definitely gained me as a fan based on this article.
