Little Crow guitars was born in 2012 when we decided to include guitar making with our normal business of making furniture. We (Dave & Viv Street) have been making furniture under the name of Ironwood Studio since 1992.
With the help and encouragement of Shane Diiorio of the Youtube channel Intheblues we made our first few guitars. We got great feedback from these early models, especially the semi-hollow Corvinho.
When Justin Johnson
toured Australia in 2014 we became aware of the roots revival and cigar
box guitar scene. The simplicity and home-made/hand-made vibe of these
instruments appealed to us and we decided to look into this area of
instrument making. To our amazement and delight Justin Johnson
enthusiastically encouraged us and helped us develop our Blues Plank
series of roots based guitars. Here is a link to an interview Justin later did with Dave about the Blues Plank series for his Roots Music School website.
We continue to develop and refine our range of instruments with an ongoing interest and passion for the blues and roots aspect.
