International guitarist Dan Jones visits my workshop during the Cardiff Guitar Festival 2018.
This site will give you an introduction to the variety and quality of the instruments I make and enable you to explore their sound and playability.
The instruments are hand-made in my workshop in Cardiff, South Wales U.K. and are constructed using responsibly sourced wood.

Preparing the jig to receive the back on Steel String guitar 028VS (serial No.PB_101)
Jon visited my workshop August 2013 and recorded this.
Martin played an incredible gig at St Davids hall last night. His playing was astounding with deeply moving lyrics.
He played “Never any Good” last night and this was recorded in Australia a while back.
This walnut has been a joy to use in the making of this Torres Style concert guitar. It has warmth and good compatibility with the Swiss spruce soundboard and produces rich and sonorous low registers with bright and controlled upper registers. The finish is French Polish which I think compliments the beauty of the wood and allows real freedom of tone.
Keep your eyes on the site for video of this guitar being played in the near future.
