Fessenden Guitar Company has been building affordable world-class steel guitars for fifteen years. Jerry Fessenden has three decades of experience as a builder and player, and now his guitars are increasingly being seen and heard on the Opry, CD's, radio, and TV.

The pictures on this page are but a brief sampling of the options available on Jerry's guitars. Country music players have known of Jerry's workmanship for years, check out Daryl Worley's steeler Eddie Gossien on the players page, Josh Bertrand with Toby Keith, Dean Parks on your favorite movie soundtrack, and many, many other steel guitarists playing at your local skull orchard, watering hole, festival or concert stage the world over.

Jerry's guitars have also made a splash in the sacred steel world, and can be seen on tour with sacred steel sensation Robert Randolph and on the “Sacred Steel” DVD on Arhoolie.
