Brian Cohen, Guitar Maker

I became a professional guitar maker in 1972, and am now the longest-established independant classical guitar maker in the UK. As well as classical guitars I make many other types, including flamenco, requinto, multi-string, steel string 'acoustic' guitars, archtop Jazz, as well as historic reconstructions. 'Special commissions' are welcomed. (Member of the Crafts Council Selected Index.)

I do have some wood to sell, including many sets of high quality Indian rosewood, and some aged mature spruce sets. I also have a lot of violin making wood for sale, in matched sets for violin, viola and cello. Many other items on offer, including glue, polish, purflings, other types of wood, books, tools, in fact anything needed to make or restore a guitar. If I do not have the item in stock, I can order for you. All items sourced from the best suppliers and contacts built up over a lifetime of guitar making, from all over the world.
