Custom Guitars & Scatterwound pickups handcrafted in Manchester, UK.

From a small workshop in Manchester that looks more like a cross between a second-hand bookshop, a set from 'Delicatessen' and the kind of place "where the old man lives", I craft one-off individual electric guitars, effects pedals & pickups by hand. Each guitar is unique; no two alike.

All my pickups are hand fed & scatterwound on a Heath Robinson type contraction that does the job beautifully. All scratchplates are custom-made for each guitar, all bodies are cut, routed, sanded, finished and oiled by hand. I even give each one a loving polish with a dry lint cloth before cracking a mini-bar sized bottle of Single Malt over the hull and letting it set sail. On a dry day, you may even see me drag all the tools out into the alleyway and set-up bench on the cobbles, the buzz & clang of the router harmonising with the bell of the off-licence door and smell of the chip shop that wafts, Lowry like, over these northern terrace roofs.

It takes a while to craft an individual guitar, that's why I only produce a couple each month. Not every month - sometimes its raining.
