Established in 1970, I am a luthier specialising in high quality Selmer Maccaferri style guitars, as famously used by Django Reinhardt.
I make Selmer style guitars in all the original configurations. i.e. 14 fret to body oval hole model with 670mm scale length, 12 fret to body oval hole model with 640mm scale length (the so-called "transitional" model), 12 fret to body D hole model with 640mm scale length, plus a 14 fret to body D hole model with 670mm scale length. This model was not produced by Selmer but has become popular in recent years.
I also make flat top guitars in a variety of shapes and styles as well as archtops and all the mandolin family of instruments.
On completion of a new instrument, I usually post on my facebook page. A link can be viewed lower down on this page if you don't have facebook. Occasionally I have guitars in stock and they can be viewed in the "Guitars In Stock" section lower down.
I also carry out repairs and modifications of all sorts including refrets and fret dressing, set ups, pick up installation and damage repairs. You can purchase strings from my online shop.
If you have a problem with your current instrument or would like to enquire about a new instrument, please get in touch either by email, phone or by post. Visitors are always welcome to my workshop but please call to arrange a suitable time. Contact details are at the bottom of this page.
