Anar Isayev played to the House of Representitives in Washington, DC. Anar was traveling at the request of the President of Azerbaijan. He is playing a custom guitar from Aperio Guitar!

Anar was kind enough to make this video demo of the guitar we built to his specs. I must say it sounds good in his hands. Thanks Anar.

You did a FANTASTIC JOB! We got the Martin D18 out, tuned it up, and it sounds GREAT! The attention to detail – especially considering the stainless steel aspect – is amazing. They look good enough to be factory – actually I take that back: better than factory, since they are bigger and shinier and nicer than factory, and sound just great.

The D18 is now seeing some revised interest in our home. Thanks a ton! G.

Just wanted to say great job. I love the new stainless frets and restoration work on the finger board is really nicely done.
You returned a timeless beauty to me!
Thanks for everything!
I think you did an absolutely incredible job and you really helped me create something that is a joy to play every time I pick it up. Thanks so much for contributing to inspiration. I can’t wait to come up with the next excuse to have you work on something else! Keep building!
The guitar is playing sooooo great and everything is gravy. Thanks soooooooo much for all of your hard work and efforts. You did an amazing job and your customer service is top notch sir. :) If there is a testimonial or something you ever want me to fill out for your website let me know and I’ll do it. Hope everything is well and in good health your way and stays that way.
