Troublesome Creek Instruments

Troublesome Creek guitars, mandolins & dulcimers are handmade in Hindman, KY from sustainably sourced local Appalachian tonewoods. Through their non-profit Appalachian School of Luthiery, they train people in recovery for addiction to become some of the best luthiers in the country. Using the finest in locally-sourced, Appalachian hardwoods, they create stunning instruments that are both tonally and environmentally excellent, while each sale contributes to the regrowth of our post-coal economy. When you purchase a Troublesome Creek instrument, you get more than a terrific handmade heirloom; you take ownership in a legacy that you helped build.

In 2022, Troublesome Creek's workshop was completely destroyed by the devastating flooding in the region - but we're happy to report they are getting back on their feet!
