"Gainesville man's love of music, woodworking a blessing for others" by Kristen Morales, Gainesville Times
I have been working in the music business for more than 35 years, and I can say without a doubt that I have never come in contact with anyone more gifted at his craft or with a bigger heart than Allen Williams! I have been playing one of his Jubilee model guitars for more than 10 years, and couldn't be happier with it. And it is always the rage with audio engineers, both live and studio. Allen knows how to build guitars - top shelf guitars. Hold onto for life guitars. And he is absolutely great to work with on a personal level. If you're in the market, you definitely have to check out Baruke Guitars. You'll be glad you did!
