Doug Holt

Doug's first Gruhn Guitars experience was at our 410 Broadway location during the mid 1970s when he and three friends snuck out of a revival meeting downtown to visit their dream guitars at the shop. After earning an Associate's Degree from Volunteer State Community College and a Bachelor's Degree in the Recording Industry from Middle Tennessee State University, Doug spent many years in the insurance business as  Manager of Process and Quality for CIGNA's Provider Directory Department and as Account Manager for RR Donnelly and Sons' Managed Care Division.

But, much like the rest of us, guitars have always been Doug's true passion. After spending several years teaching guitar and running his own guitar repair business, Doug came full circle and started working on his dream guitars as a member of the Gruhn repair staff in 2013.
