I’m an experienced luthier building, repairing and restoring all types of stringed instruments in Galloway, South West Scotland.

I learned my trade in the early 1980s under the master luthiers Stephen Barber and Roger Rose. In those days I concentrated on creating authentic replicas of lutes, viols and other renaissance and baroque instruments. Today I mostly make bespoke guitars and mandolin family instruments, and offer a full range of repair and restoration services for all types of stringed instruments.
