How we started
RJ Guitars has been manufacturing guitars in the Philippines since 1988. Our founder, RJ Jacinto, is a Filipino musician who has been performing for over 55 years. RJ wanted to develop a guitar capable of swithching between guitar tones so that he would not need to change guitars during his shows.
After 25 years of research, we have been able to develop perhaps the most versatile guitar in the world today - The RJ SuperVintage®. Through our hand-wound RJ Mystique™ pick-ups together with the RJ Intelliswitch™, the RJ SuperVintage® allows guitars the freedom of having 5 guitars in one and mixing and matching tones to create a truly one of a kind guitar unlike any in the market today.
Why RJ Guitars?
RJ Guitars has 28 years of manufacturing and retailing guitars.
The RJ SuperVintage® is made in a Japanese-run factory in the Philippine export zone. This factory creates world-class guitars that are exported to Japan and parts of Europe.
Led by Japanese luthier Masayuki Takaesu, each RJ SuperVintage® is handcrafted by our luthiers using Philippine Mango Wood to produce a truly unique guitar with second to none quality.
"The RJ Super Vintage is an exceptional and unique guitar that merits the consideration of any player looking for versatility without walking away from the comfort of classic guitar technology."

"RJ Jacinto designs the ‘holy grail’ of guitars"
Scott R. Garceau, The Philippine Star
"...here is an extremely well-though out design
in terms of sound and construction, creating
a guitar that plays really well... it's surprisingly
characterful and versatile. We'd gig it
at the drop of a hat."
