Introducing Codella Guitars: New Guitar Company Brings Silicon Valley Innovation to the Industry

Share Article

Codella Guitars is a new, family owned and operated company building premium quality guitars in the San Francisco bay area. Featuring a variety of innovations, including a patented proprietary tremolo system, rear truss adjustment, and magnetic rear access panel, Codella Guitars is redefining the instrument and is aiming to disrupt the industry.

Codella Guitars is a new, family operated, California-based guitar company that is bringing Silicon Valley innovation to the instrument.

Codella Guitars stands out in the crowded guitar space by offering unique design features not found anywhere else, along with the perfect balance of aesthetics, playability, and tone. The Codella family is committed to using US made components and materials wherever possible, and all guitars are assembled by hand in the 5800 sq. ft. family-owned facility.

An early supporter of Codella Guitars has been GRAMMY nominated artist Anthony Gonzalez of M83, who had this to say about the instrument: “When you play on a Codella guitar, you can feel all the love they put in their instruments. The finish is just impeccable, as well as the sound of it. Codella makes beautiful guitars for guitar lovers.”

Some of Codella Guitars innovations include:

  • Simple Truss: Codella Guitars have their truss rod adjustments at the heel of the neck. Normally inaccessible and burdensome, this patent pending invention greatly simplifies truss rod adjustment.
  • Magnetic Rear Access Panel: Neodymium magnets securely hold the back access cover, yet can be removed by applying pressure at a specified point.
  • Tremolizer: Patent pending tremolo stabilizer keeps the tremolo fixed during heavy string bends and maintains tuning in the event of a broken string.
  • Back Panel Tool Chest: The most commonly used Allen wrenches are secured in a handy compartment in the rear tremolo cavity.
  • Flush Mount Pick-guard: The pick-guard is held in place by machine screws and threaded inserts.

Dan Codella, the president of Codella Guitars and guitarist of forty five years, had this to say about the company: “Everyone in our family is passionate about the instrument. While it seems that most of the major guitar companies have slowed in their innovation, we are working day and night to bring new features that add real playability enhancements that guitar players will appreciate.”

Codella Guitars will be exhibiting their debut line of instruments at the Summer NAMM show in Nashville, TN, July 17-19 in booth #1251. More information about the company can be found on their website,
