I live in Suffolk and build/repair electric guitars.

How did it all start?

I’d been playing guitar for a few years, and had a dream of building my own. Brian May had done it – how hard could it be?

I soon found out.

I visited the library (yes, it was that long ago), bought a copy of Melvyn Hiscock’s book How to Build an Electric Guitar, and headed to my art school woodshop with an armful of lumber. I still have that guitar, and it still plays well, but I had been bitten by the bug. I had more ideas. More guitars to build!

Friends started bringing me their guitars to repair, and I built more guitars.

I now have two models, Kanto and Sola, which can be built with different combinations of electrics and hardware.

My guitars also feature Sunbear Pickups and Grainger Hardware, both built in the UK.

If you would like to know about repairing or upgrading you guitar, or discuss your next custom model, please drop me a line. I would love to have a chat!
