General Instruments is a small electric guitar and amplifier company based in the Costa Dorada, Spain. Our goal is to build the best vintage instruments, just as the instruments were during the 50's and mid-60's. Our work is created only with passion, dedication and years of experience. We build our Hand wired Guitars and Amplifiers in very limited units, with selected woods, using traditional style Nitrocellulose solvent based varnishes, selected high quality hardware and materials one by one ensuring that each instrument whether it is an instrument or amplification equipment receives the attention it deserves, from the selection of wood, components, materials to completion and delivery. On our website you can find the correct historical pieces that we use in our models, Hand-wound Scatter wound pickups traditionally in our small workshop.

Welcome to your home, I am Oscar Garcia Díaz, Owner, builder and axis of General Vintage Tone. I was always interested in electric guitar from a very young age, until it formed a way of life in me. I have been a collector of old guitars, amplifiers and other artifacts ... After not finding what I needed I began to build amplifiers and electric guitars, this is where we have come. One thing I learned along the way. 

"Without soul there is no tone" We decided to give all our soul to it " .

It is difficult to determine how I started, but very early, from my teenage age, I have always been repairing equipment, I have always been surrounded by amplifiers, preamps and so on. Actually in 2004 I started to build my first guitars (hehe) some very strange and others more conventional (hehehe), some overdrive pedals and amplifiers, all arranged with repairs from local musicians. But I discovered that it was not the time and I decided to continue building my knowledge to find my true passion, what I believe in and I was lucky enough to reconcile the terrain where I am capable of creating. In 2014, after having my son, I decided to create General Vintage, based in El Vendrell, Costa Daurada, Tarragona.
