Dudebroski Guitars | About Us

Greetings, and thank you for stopping by. Dudebroski Guitars is here to earn your business, one sale at a time.

 

David Slivinski is a lifelong musician and started playing in high school rock-n-roll bands in the late 80's. Since then, David has played in multiple bands, toured, did time in one those national music retail chains, owned a music booking agency, spent over a decade in the corporate world and then came back full circle to guitars.

 

Dudebroski Guitars incorporated in 2015 out of a pure passion for rock-n-roll and the instrument that makes it all happen (IMO), the guitar. Prior to incorporating, Dudebroski started with a few guitar flips on Craigslist. Then more flips turned into a little inventory and some cash flow. More Inventory turned into the garage as a makeshift shipping warehouse and every closet in the house became storage. David has a very supportive wife and kids to say the least! All this while holding down a Corporate gig to pay the bills and fuel this new biz venture.

 

These humble beginnings are at the crux of Dudebroski Guitars core values. We are small biz, fiercely independent and a bit unorthodox when it comes to retail. We don't hold "normal business hours" primarily because this biz was built to sell online. However, we have recently expanded into a small warehouse/showroom in Jacksonville, FL now available for local sales and trades. 

 

Dudebroski doesn't just sell guitars, we provide tools that allow you to be creative, more expressive and ultimately the guitar or bass player you want to be. Your instrument and tone are an extension of you, make it the best it can be. 

 

But where did the name Dudebroski come from?

 

Inevitably this question comes up a lot. First, it's pronounced Dude-Bro-Ski. I like to say, "It's Polish for guitar." Simply put, it's a play on words since my last name is Slivinski. The term "Dude" in this instance  is not referring to any specific person, gender or thing at all.  But when you call someone a Dude and a Bro, it's a term of endearment. Clearly you're just a good dude, bro. And if your last name is of Polish decent? Boom, Dudebroski.

 

As always, if you see something you like, ask questions. We love to talk shop. If there's something you're looking for in particular, let us know and we can track it down.
