Guitar Makers

Gary Southwell
maker of the most wonderful guitar I have ever played, the A Series, and many historical copies, including the Scherzer 10-string.

Thorsten Lietz, an up-and-coming German maker.
No historical copies are advertised on his site, but he can certainly make them if asked! Thorsten has two sites: one in German and one with a choice of English or German.

Bernhard Kresse
well-known maker of historical copies. There are some very interesting photographs on his site, so it's well worth a look.

This is just a beginning, so apologies to anyone who feels left out! Check back often for more additions and please email us if you have any recommendations or would like to be included.
