Message from the Owner
Hi, I'm Mark Blasko, owner and founder of Cumberland Guitars LLC. and I want to be YOUR guitar guy.
I fell in love with the guitar around the age of 7. By high school, I decided that guitars were going to be my life's work. I wanted to know everything about them... all of them. I wanted to learn every style of music, play every type of guitar, and learn the history behind them... I was completely hooked. By 16, I was surrounded by guitars; buying and selling them on eBay as fast as I could while performing and recording with multiple rock bands, a country band, classical guitar orchestra, and my high school jazz ensemble.
At 18, I became a manager of the local vintage guitar shop, forever cementing my love of putting guitars in people's hands. I held several sales, repair, and guitar instructor positions in Virginia prior to graduating from Atlanta's Luthier's International program in 2005. I managed Guitar Center's Vintage and Platinum Atlanta office for several years before becoming a Product Specialist for the Gibson family of brands (Gibson, Epiphone, Kramer, Tobias, Steinberger). After a few wonderful years at Gibson, I joined Fender, supporting the growth of their Specialty Brands division (Gretsch, Jackson, Charvel, EVH, Guild).
I hold authorized warranty tech credentials for over 20 guitar brands, have toured every major guitar factory in the US, and performed over 1,000 live shows. I even have a Guinness World Record for playing air guitar!
I am truly a guitar nut, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and expertise with you and your instruments!
