James Lister - Handbuilt Classical Guitars

Fine classical guitars hadn built in Newark, England (UK)

My principal aim is to build guitars that are sensitive to the touch, to allow the player to express their own musicality, and not be dominated by the character of the guitar itself. The best classical guitars will sound good when played by anyone of reasonable musical ability, but the tones produced will be determined by both the style of the player and the guitar itself.

Built mainly in the tradition of Torres, my guitars are made to a consistent design based on a 1938 Hauser, but incorporating other (mostly aesthetic) ideas of my own.

James Lister's Classical Guitars

James Lister makes some aesthetically pleasing instruments. None of the instruments I have seen on the website are very gawdy or ornamental, but they boast solid wood construction with the most pleasing sound. They have a very mellow sound . . . much like that of a lute. I as a classical guitarist hope to own one someday.
