The Story Behind


About the Maker (from Wikipedia):

Robin Guitars is a boutique guitar manufacturer located in Houston, Texas. As of 12/01/10, Robin Guitars has quit production of guitars although production of Rio Grande Pickups continues.

The company was formed in 1982 by Dave Wintz who owned the Rockin' Robin Guitar Shop at the time. Robin guitars were made in Japan by Tokai and Chushin until 1986, when their production moved to the United States. Notable endorsers include Stevie Ray Vaughan and his brother Jimmie, who were frequently seen onstage with the "RDN" 6-string standard neck/6 string octave neck double-neck guitar in the 1980s. Eric Johnson has played them, and Stevie Blaze of Lillian Axe also played Robin guitars during the early part of his career. Robin guitars and basses have featured pickups from their sister company, Rio Grande Pickups since 1994.

About the Guitar:

Dave Wintz, President of Robin Guitars designed that guitar and personally oversaw its construction. It was custom build for Tim Kelly, guitarist of the band Slaughter. Tim was also an endorser of Robin Guitars. After the prematured death of Tim Kelly, his brother sold the guitar. This is a one off guitar! An earlier Robin doubleneck was build for Jimmie Vaughan and Stevie Vaughan, his brother, was seen alot with it. But that guitar was quite different as it was fitted with a shorter double neck.
