Each company has its own story. Ours began in 2011. On the other hand, the roots of this story date back to the 1980s and involve one person, without whom it is impossible to imagine our present and future. This person is me, Andrzej Polakow, born in Minsk, BY, quite a long time ago.

I started assembling the first guitars and pickups made of radio earcups at the age of 12. Fortunately, from birth I have grown hands where I need to be and a head open to good ideas.

After graduating from school, I got a degree in radioelectronics, which I finished as an engineer-designer of radioelectronic devices with a master’s thesis “Design and implementation of the Electric Guitar”.

During my studies in 1985, together with my friend Andrey Rumiantsev, I founded a guitar company called “POLARUM GUITARS CUSTOM SHOP”. You can read more about this period here http://apgpickups.com/?p=28

Since then, we have been constantly developing, thanks to which we are experts in the guitar industry.
