Rocking Robin

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.
