New Gallery

I've uploaded some photos of the elevated fingerboard guitar I built last year. I'm now offering this option on my guitars, which gives improved access to the upper frets. Pictures of this guitar can be found in Gallery 3.

New YouTube videos from Nick Fletcher

Nick Fletcher has recently recorded a number of videos featuring two of my guitars, one his 2007 spruce/Indian rosewood guitar, and the other the Panormo copy I completed earlier this year, and lent to him for these recordings. You can see the YouTube videos on the Samples page.

Classical and flamenco guitars, hand made in the Spanish tradition, and to the highest standards, in my workshop in Sheffield.

Elevated fingerboard

My principal aim as a classical guitar maker is to build instruments that respond to the player's touch, allowing them to express their own musicality, and not be dominated by the character of the guitar itself. My guitars are light and responsive, with excellent clarity and separation. Built mainly in the tradition of Torres, most of my guitars are made to a consistent design based on a 1938 Hauser, but incorporating a slightly modified strutting pattern.

Each guitar is handbuilt to meet the customer's requirements, using best quality tonewoods throughout. European Spruce is normally used for the top, although western red cedar is an option. Indian rosewood, Brazilian rosewood, flamed or bird's-eye maple, walnut, macassar ebony and ziricote are available for the back and sides of the guitar.
