I am an independent classical guitar maker, based in the UK, where I produce high quality handmade instruments from my workshop, based in Ascot, Berkshire.
I build using very little machinery, concentrating on using traditional hand tools, as I feel it is important to be in touch with the materials while maintaining control over my work.
Traditional hide glue is used in virtually all operations, it is strong, adds to the tonal qualities and is tried and tested over hundreds of years. Every aspect is handmade in a controlled environment, using the finest materials, which I source myself.
I have received much guidance and advice from professional players and other makers over the years and this has helped me evolve as a maker and produce guitars that are easy on the hands with slim necks a comfortable action, and a profile to suit the modern guitarist.
I also have detailed access to many master guitars such as Hermann Hauser, Santos Hernandez, Hernandez y Aguado and D. Friedrich to name a few.
My guitars are also stocked by Kent Guitar Classics
