The English Gent

This was the first guitar that sparked my interest in using UK sourced woods and hardware. Everything on this guitar except the tuners and bridge are sourced right here in England; with the tonewood coming from less than 25 miles from my workshop, along with the handwound pickups from Bareknuckle pickups in Cornwall, this guitar is as English as fish and chips, warm beer and wet bank holidays.
