Late last year, after saying for about 15 years that “I’m gonna make my own guitars”, I made two steel string acoustic guitars under the experienced tuition of John Buckham in Wauchope. I am now making my next batch with John, including a small parlour style, OM with a cut away, OM 12 string + cut away and an acoustic bass. Check out my Google Photo's albums of my first two builds from 2019 + the latest batch in 2020 as they develop. Visit and his FOCUS magazine interview for info on John's guitars and to inquire about getting tuition yourself.
