At Crimson Guitars, http://www.crimsonguitars.com we build unique bespoke guitars and basses and our work is not limited by materials or blind traditions. Master luthier Ben Crowe draws heavily on his training in building baroque violins and viola da gambas but has spent the last decade expanding his skills to encompass the disciplines of engineering and modern design. A custom guitar is not just about woodwork and we often create bespoke pickups and hardware, including ball-bearing based perfect-pitch tremolo systems. We are not limited to working in wood, though it is our first love. Carbon fibre and cast resins have their place in a modern guitar and we are even building guitars with shaped copper or steel tops.. Character, beauty, individualism.. soul... this is what makes a true custom guitar..

Throughout each working day we post photo's of every phase of every build, you can see each hand made guitar grow from timber to tunes live or at weeks end through the Workshop Diary! Why not contact us to discuss your idea of the perfect stringed instrument, we do love a challenge. Show less
