As well as being a resource and “how-to” for budding guitar builders, this site serves as a gallery for the work of the students on my High School guitar building course, and shows that, at the age of sixteen, they consistently produced superb instruments.


I am now able to offer guitars made to order. See the tin guitars page for details of these unique instruments or contact me to discuss and order your own unique guitar.
