Founded in Bakersfield, California in the ‘60s as something of an offshoot of Mosrite, the original Hallmark guitar company operated for just a couple of years, producing a relatively out-there model known as the “Swept Wing.”

In the late ’90s, the brand was revitalized by Maryland-based builder Bob Shade, who produces a whole range of guitars based ultra-rare original Hallmarks as well as some Mosrite-inspired designs. Based in their popularity, it appears the the current generation of Hallmarks have earned a spot as the go-to make for anyone looking for a Mosrite-esque guitar.
