The music industry is constantly evolving with new talent, new ideas, technology and new sounds. Innovation and creation are key to this ever-evolving industry. Creating Box Guitars to assist in this new age of music is simply part of the evolution of change.
Australian born, Stu Box is many things at once; guitarist, songwriter, arranger, producer and entrepreneur. His drive fuels his two key passions, namely music and inventing. You could term this creative restlessness, a facet of Miles Davis of course, not to mention Jimi Hendrix. Stu was just six when his parents gave him his first guitar.
After winning a national guitar competition in 1987 Stu became the third Australian in history to be featured in Guitar Player magazine, 1988/89. He was then featured in Guitar World magazine and UK Guitarist magazine in 1990 followed by German and Japanese guitarist magazines.
Stu became good friends with Larry Corryelle in 1990 who mentored him in his early career, this was followed by appearances on MTV & CNN in the USA. He has since studied and worked with many respected artists creating more than a dozen albums in addition to playing as a session guitarist. He has toured multiple times across Australia and the USA.
Stu’s true passion for new and authentic sounds assisted him to create, design and manufacture unique guitars with a sound never before heard. He is recognized as the founder of the 12 string dual electric touch style guitar which he first started developing in 1986, collaborating with Ned Steinberger and Trevour Wilkinson to bring his vision to fruition.
As an entrepreneur, Stu has created and own’s a successful music development and manufacturing business which boasts over thirty unique musical products that are successfully distributed and sold across Australasia, the USA and Europe.
In Stu’s own words: I feel incredibly blessed and fortunate to be part of the music industry and I embrace and look forward to the future, designing innovative guitars and creating unique music to complement this ever changing and expanding creative industry sector.
