GPL Acoustic Guitars

Many guitarists are perceived as creative, edgy, impulsive and non-conformist.

However, when it comes to the instruments that they own and cherish they are very much conformist and conservative (that’s with a small c) and are only happy when playing a vintage or first issue instrument.
It is with this ethos that I follow most acoustic guitar making construction styles and traditions.
All my instruments are made to order from the finest materials available in a variety of styles.
Here are a few examples of my fine acoustic guitars.
