Prices

Prices of my hand made guitars vary depending on many factors but the following should give you a good indication of the level of investment you’ll be looking to make.

One thought on “Prices

  1. Dear Paul,
    After viewing your excellent website, I have the following special request: would you be prepared to build me a classical guitar but with steel strings ? My reason for this request is as follows: I have played guitar since the age of ten (I am now seventy two) covering rock, folk and classical. I don’t profess to be any great shakes, but I do still enjoy playing – for my own amusement. I have a classical (nylon strung) guitar that I have played for the last twenty or so years, but I find that with advancing age, more and more effort is required to deal with the relatively high string action, especially around the top area of the fingerboard. I think that the lower action offered by a steel strung instrument would be a considerable help in this respect. I do much prefer the width of the standard classical guitar fingerboard to the narrower dimension of the normal acoustic guitar. Ideally, I would like the instrument to fit the standard classical guitar specification – flat fingerboard (48 mm nut width would be preferred to the standard 50mm width) with the standard body and neck dimensions. I recently saw the guitarist, Clive Carroll, at a concert in London. He played classical guitar music on a steel strung instrument and it sounded magnificent. I would be interested in your comments.

    Best regards
