Zachary Lefebvre crafts 6-7 guitars a year in the small village of Hilton Beach (pop. 145). Hilton beach is located on the northeastern shore of St. Joseph Island in the North Channel of Lake Huron, Ontario. Treehouse guitars are crafted and built with the deepest respect to the land all while capturing the sheer majesty of nature as a musical instrument. Zachary sources historic, salvaged woods and is dedicated to the 2 year goal of operating completely off the grid. This dedication to preserving the environment comes through the guitars as a profound, distinct voice that can only be orchestrated by an artist very intimately related to his material.
Zachary apprenticed with Canadian legend Serge De Jonge before opening up his own shop on St Joseph Island. He is currently building 6-7 world class instruments a year.
