We currently offer 5 ‘GT’ models all hand made at our workshops in East Sussex.
Traditional styling combined with individual detailing & innovation. Made by hand, preferring the use of pencil lines, saws, planers, sanders & routers over the more modern CNC machining. We use a spoke shave for the necks which come in 3 different thicknesses although every neck can be shaped to order, then shoe shined to final thickness with body & neck hand sanded to final finish.
We take great pleasure in hand selecting all our wood from a few local suppliers as well as some top woods internationally. The bodies & necks are made from Honduras Mahogany, either a 1 piece body for the GTA & GTB or 2 piece for the carved GT models. The necks are 1 piece cut in 2 then rejoined with internal stringers for strengthening as well as for aesthetics with the stringer usually matching the fretboard wood. All models have a hand set neck with a glued mortice & tenon fitting for superior resonance & sustain.
For the tops we use a choice of exotic woods from around the world including Cocobolo, Ebony, Maple (Flame & Quilt) Sequoia Redwood & Walnut. Our fretboards can be either Cocobolo, Ebony, Indian Rosewood or Ziricote which feature a Maple wave cut into both the fretboard and matching head veneer. We make the Bindings usually from the fretboard wood or from the cap, detailed usually with maple veneers between the woods. The woods are always sourced from reputable dealers in exotic timber and all original paperwork and permits are obtained for shipping our guitars overseas.
