Hand Made Guitars in the Scottish Borders

 
In my workshop in the Scottish Borders countryside, I build only a small number of instruments each year - principally steel string acoustic guitars and archtop guitars, but also mandolins of all types.
 
Instruments are built to commission and optimised for each individual player - their style of music and their style of playing. The method of construction, the body shape, the scale length, neck profile and string spacing are designed in conjunction with the player to produce a uniquely built instrument. Every set of tonewood used in the construction of an instrument is different in its characteristics, and each instrument is crafted to provide the best tone and response from the woods used in its construction.


Visitors to the workshop are welcome, and having said that I build to commission, I generally try to have a couple of guitars to hand for playing and these may be available for purchase - please check if you think you may be interested.

I also offer a repair and restoration service.

 

I'm not a big user of social media, but I try to keep the Facebook page updated with developments.
