Eric C. Newell

Eric began his tenure with Gruhn Guitars in 2006 as Repair Department Manager.  He worked closely with the repair team for six years and evolved this department into the most efficient and productive arrangement seen within the company’s history.  In 2012, Eric was promoted to General Manager and took a similar approach to the business as a whole yielding equally measurable results.  In 2015, Eric was promoted to the position of Company President and holds the honored responsibility of ushering the business into the future while maintaining the company's rich and well earned history and reputation.


Eric grew up in Nashville after his family relocated to join the music industry.  He has played numerous instruments from the time he was old enough to handle them.  Favorite instruments include the Gibson Trini Lopez, Gruhn Custom Electric Hollowbodies and early 50s Gibson LG-2 guitars.  In spare time Eric usually finds himself on the tennis court.
