Paul Waller Master Builder
Master Builder Paul Waller is a Southern California native with woodworking and guitar making in his blood. He built his first guitar at age 14 in his high school woodshop and hasn™t looked back since.He joined a cabinet shop right out of high school and, after a stint at a small Southern California guitar maker, enrolled at the acclaimed Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix in 2000. There he trained extensively in electric and acoustic guitar construction and repair, specializing in arch-top work, which remains his favorite. Waller joined Fender in 2003 fresh from his training at Roberto-Venn. He spent two years working closely with master arch-top craftsman Bob Benedetto, and he became steeped in the many facets of building techniques from all the Custom Shop' Master Builders.
