Annette's guitar is finished!

Another dreadnought done and ready to make some more classical acoustics. Check out the latest pictures in the gallery here.

5th guitar ordered!

For those of you still thinking of getting a custom made acoustic guitar the price has gone up. Sorry, but it was inevitable. However, I am still going to be very reasonable with my pricing. Rather than a set price, I will be starting at $1500 for a guitar using Fiddleback Blackwood back and sides and Bunya soundboard.

Other timber choices will be more, based on the direct costs to me (about $150 extra). This deal will be for the next 5 guitars. Other options like Paua shell inlay will also add a small extra cost.

Don't miss out on getting a guitar at the introductory price!

We still have one guitar left at the introductory price of $1100. Once there is an official order in for that guitar the pricing will have to go up to actually match the value of the instrument. The current pricing will be in the $2200 - $2500 range depending on timbers etc. Pickups can be an added option and cases can be matched to the guitars. Contact us with the email above to get a guitar that you will love!

a special guitar for a more than special customer

We are building a Black Heart Sassafras Dreadnought for Annette, Martin's wife. This one better be good! Annette still has her Yamaha classical from her teens so we know she will look after it. Annette has been the most supportive person to Martin and had been involved in the choices of timber, finishes etc so it will be great to see how this one turns out. Back and sides are already looking great.

Fourth guitar ordered!

We have gone national! That's right, Martin Taylor Guitars is now supplying to the nation. Not that we weren't before but we are officially now. Adelaide will be getting a guitar in the coming months. A Fiddleback Blackwood and Bunya Pine CA model. Build pictures will be coming soon.
