BecVar spent many years as a guitar builder. His art and skill in the making and embellishing of instruments, along with growing recognition for his guitar compositions, brought him to Northern California in the early 70's. He set up shop in Sonoma, California where he became well known as a luthier, making one-of-a-kind custom  electric guitars for such world-class bands as The Who, The Peter Frampton, Led Zeppelin, The Jackson Five, Earth, Wind & Fire and Carlos Santana. One of his guitars, ornate with exotic inlay and carving, now resides in the permanent collection of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
