CUSTOM GUITARS

HANDMADE IN SCOTLAND

Scroll to learn more about what I do 

Woodcraft and  music were a constant throughout my school life. But it wasn't until I began studying stringed Instrument making at Anniesland college,  that I really knew what my calling in life was. Here I was initially under the tutealage of the brilliant Scottish Luthier 'Bill Kelday'...

I keep my making very traditional, utilising hide glue, favouring hand tools and using simple rope/wedges for clamping. Every wooden element is handmade by myself, all aesthetic details, rosettes, purfling, binding and all internal components. Rarely repeating design elements, so every guitar is unique. 
I build both Nylon & Steel String guitars, but it is Spanish methods of construction that I favour for all my builds.

Stories from the workshop, 
Either guitar projects/builds I am working on, Interesting Repairs I have been doing and the stories of some of the talented people who own one of my guitars. Probably the odd other guitar related babble for good measure.
