Rare Jazz Guitars Built by Sam Koontz Discovered

By Dari Mandell

Master luthier Sam Koontz had hand-carved only 200 guitars before he died in 1981.  Thirty-one of the rare guitars were discovered after Howard Krive, an avid guitar collector, passed away.  Christopher Wylde, a family friend, has been working with Krive’s family to inventory and appraise the nearly 150 guitars in the collection.

  1. Really enjoyed the video! I’ll be checking back for more updates

  2. My brother has one of the few Koontz guitars that does not have any imperfections (warped neck). He is looking to sell. Please contact me if you or someone you know is interested.
