Lyndell Thompson

Lyndell Thompson was delighted when her two sons, Phil and James, came to her and her husband with a new idea for their Nashville-based leather company. The year was 1978. Until that point the company had made horse accessories, a market that was slowly decreasing. The boys suggested making leather guitar straps based on the strength of a request from the Martin Guitar Company. Lyndell enjoys working in the shop and handles most of the phone calls and orders.
