The Story Behind


About the Builder:

Gary Cooper, luthier and guitar guru, passed away in January 2001 in a car accident. Gary worked at Alembic in 1973, at the beginning of the Wall of Sound time. He left Alembic and started in 1974 his own guitar brand 'Oasis' in Sacramento, CA. This lasted about 5 years with a production of some very fine guitars most of the time custom made. After that he was a guitar technician at Skip's Music in Sacramento for about 30 years. 

 About the Guitar:

Oasis Guitars was located in Sacramento, CA. Gary Cooper was the luthier, formerly from Alembic and the Grateful Dead. This type and shape of guitar exists in different finishes and seems to be the standard model of Oasis guitars. Pickups have probably been changed during the life of the guitar.
Otherwise the guitar remains original. Great craftmansship and sound!
