The Village of La Patrie

The village of La Patrie, Quebec is the home of Norman guitars. La Patrie was settled in 1875 and many of today’s Norman employees can trace their ancestry back to the original settlers. The courage and survival of these pioneers is amazing considering the daunting combination of dense forests, mountains and incredibly harsh winters. We pay tribute to these brave folks here. You’ll see actual pictures of early La Patrie, many of them dating back as far as the early 1900's. It’s a heritage of which we are proud and which has produced a community of hard-working people dedicated to the craft of guitar making.

The first Norman guitars were produced in the early 1970's. In the last thirty years, Norman's reputation for superb quality and excellent value has grown in a grassroots, word-of-mouth kind of way amongst musicians which has earned Norman guitars the distinction of ‘Canada's guitar'. This quiet, testimonial type of marketing has made it possible for us to invest back into the guitars themselves, creating one of the most technically sophisticated guitar building facilities in the world. Our state-of-the-art technology enables us to bring precision and consistency to our guitar crafting heritage which uses premium tonewoods to create truly world class guitars that carry the Norman name.
