Wayne C. Henderson is an American guitar maker who specializes in the crafting of handmade, custom acoustic guitars. He also occasionally makes other stringed instruments, such as mandolins, banjos, and fiddles. He is based in Rugby, Virginia, in Grayson County. Henderson's guitars are inspired by the great pre-World War II guitars of C.F. Martin & Company, and are hand-built in limited quantities; by October 2012, over five hundred Henderson guitars had been constructed. In a 1995 White House ceremony, he was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship in recognition of his extraordinary instrument-making. The book Clapton's Guitar: Watching Wayne Henderson Build the Perfect Instrument (2005) outlined the process by which Henderson built a guitar for Eric Clapton. In 2008 he was the subject of an Appalshop documentary, From Wood to Singing Guitar. Henderson also built guitars for Tommy Emmanuel, Doc Watson, Peter Rowan and Gillian Welch. Henderson is also a fingerstyle guitar player, and was influenced by his older cousin Estil C. Ball.

Presley is 11 years old and began playing guitar when he was 7 and1/2 years old. He developed an interest in music at an early age and loves listening to bluegrass music. He enjoys attending Bluegrass Festivals and Fiddler's Conventions. Presley hopes to continue playing guitar for years to come and has an interest in learning mandolin and banjo in the future.
