Hubert Friar was hired by the Gibson Guitar Company in Kalamazoo in 1959. Hubert worked for the company over 25 years. He worked at the end of the line, doing fret work. Hubert grew up playing guitar and knew Ren Wall and his father as a kid. When he was older he was recommended by Ren's father and loved having the chance to work for the Gibson company. Hubert decided to stay in the Kalamazoo area when Gibson moved to Nashville in 1985 and retired from the company at that time.
