Lance Acreman, guitar technician since 1996, got his start at Jubilee Music in Fairhope, AL. While enrolled at Auburn University pursuing a degree in Psychology, Acreman worked at the Auburn Guitar Shoppe from 2002 to 2011. Building his skill set as the sole technician as well as working on the floor, he expanded his role from repairs to sales and equipment.
In 2011, Acreman moved to Nashville to pursue his own Music City dream. Rather than perform on Broadway, Acreman's goal was to work in a guitar repair shop (no retail) within five years. Starting at Simon Ripley's Acreman grew his customer base while getting his feet wet in Music City's rich entertainment culture. It was at Simon Ripley's that Acreman was found by Ed Beaver, of Ed Beaver Guitars. As Ed looked to transition from repairs to building guitars, he took Lance on to mentor and shape to eventually take over the business that would become Acreman Guitars.
In 2013, the Guitar Whisperer (Ed Beaver) signed out of Ed Beaver Guitars to pursue his calling in building guitars, turning the business over to Lance. Two years after moving to Nashville, Acreman reached and surpassed his original goal of working in a repair shop to owning one as well as going on tour in 2012 until 2021 with "The Greatest Country Band of All Time" (ALABAMA), as a guitar tech and stage manager. Since then he has worked and toured with countless others including REBA, MMJ, Alanis and Avett Bros. Nashville has been very good to Acreman, he is humbled to return the favor in the way of repairing instruments from novice players to professionals.
Acreman Guitar's client base includes A-list national touring artists, CMA & Grammy winning artists and more importantly, everyday musicians keeping the dream alive. Acreman treats every instrument as he would his own. Whether your guitar needs tuning or its literally in pieces (true experience), head to Acreman Guitars to have it playing back to new, and looking good to boot.
