Robert Compton is no stranger to life-changing events. As you'll hear in our interview, he's had quite a few. In fact, Compton's knack for surviving a few of those events is what's led him to focus his passion and channel his creativity into building guitars out of his home in New Jersey. 

Redemption, a love of music, and a rekindling of childhood dreams is what helped turn this veteran of corporate America around. Join me as I talk with Robert from his home in Stirling, NJ.
