World-class basses and guitars designed by a world-class musician


Bespoke instruments built for the discerning professional musician and serious connoisseur using cutting-edge methods and time-honored practices.


Combining elegant form with quality workmanship for beautiful sound, each Jones Musical Instrument is designed by Darryl Jones.


All Jones basses and guitars are crafted in the U.S. by John Carruthers, a legend who has built custom instruments for countless artists around the world. John worked on the Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Robben Ford lines for Fender, as well as the Joe Pass model for Ibanez, among many others.


Darryl has developed four different models that harken back to the classic vintage guitars of the 1950’s and 1960’s, and each can be customized to suit individual players’ sonic and aesthetic desires.
