Greg Rich.

Artist Greg Rich has spent his career creating pieces of custom art for musicians all over the world. He became known worldwide when he took over the Gibson Custom Shop and resurrected the Gibson banjo line. He ushered in a new era of instrumental works-of-art during his time creating Gibson's art instruments.

He’s known for the one-of-a-kind instruments he’s created for folks like Gene Autry, Roy Rogers , Dale Evans and Garth Brooks to name a few. Many of these pieces are featured in galleries and museums as well as in the collections of the world's foremost instrument aficionados.

As a woodworker, engraver, painter and freehand artist, Greg has pushed the limits of design (and sometimes taste) with his elaborate creations. He’s never been one to follow trends, consider boundaries or repeat himself with his work.
