Patch Rubin of Wide Sky Guitars has built a legendary following by hand-crafting acoustic and electric guitars in his studio on Taos Mesa in New Mexico. Following a varied career of performance, jewelry making, welding, carpentry, and custom furniture making, Rubin decided to build a guitar and hasn't looked back since. Today, Gary Clark Junior, Thom Yorke, Billie Joe Armstrong, Jeff Tweedy, John Doei, Gregory Alan Isakov, and Marc Ford are among the musicians whom Rubin has built guitars for.
"Guitar-making is really the perfect combination of all my interests," Rubin concluded. "It feels like the right fit, finally, and I feel so lucky to be able to do it right here."
