Philosophy

 

"Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, save perhaps two.”

-Fredric Chopin

I started to think about the method of handcrafting the guitars I wanted to make. I know there is a market for a fine quality guitar, if one could be handmade for reasonable price by using high quality woods, vital to the sound of the instrument.

I knew that market exists because I would have gladly purchased such a guitar if the classical guitars made by English Luthiers were accessible.

I started to research how major savings in cost could be made without any detriment to the sound and asthetics of the instrument. Hundreds of pounds could be saved by using less expensive imported tuning machines and pre-made soundhole rosettes (although my latest models have unique bespoke rosettes of my own design).

The guitars I have built, currently follow that philosophy with the design concentrating on the purity of sound.

The guitars now available are entirely handmade each taking more than 120 hours of loving care and attention to detail to complete.
