Oral History Information
Dave Wintz has always enjoyed designing musical gear, whether it be guitars or pickups. His passion lies with creating a product that will provide any musician with the opportunity to add to their own unique sound, like a painter adding a new color to his palette. In the early part of his career, Dave and his partner opened a music store in Houston, Texas, called Rocking Robins. Within a few years they created their own guitar brand called Robin Guitars, which featured a specialized pickup system. That system remains a big selling product even though they discontinued the guitar in 2013.
